LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (FOX44) — Livingston Parish President, Layton Ricks, is trying to keep his interim finance director in his administration. Ricks had to retract his nomination of Laurie Durnin for Finance Director.
That's after the parish council told him the would not vote for her to do the job for the long haul. However, Ricks still plans to keep Durnin in his office, either in the finance department or somewhere else. He says she is highly qualified to be on his team.
Ricks plans to suggest another finance director candidate to the parish council within the next few weeks.
