Fans of a single tax assesor for Orleans must have winced when they learned that Jefferson Parish Asssessor Lawrence Chehardy pulled some strings that led to Latter & Blum firing its President Arthur Sterbcow. LINK. His offense was to work with the Picayune on a story about property values in JP which was mildy critical of a certain assessor. Sterbcow did the same thing in Orleans back in 2004. He kept his job then. Hmm what’s the difference: the “powerful” JP assessor Mr. Chehardy. Mr. Sterbcow stepped on Chehardy’s toes and one should never dance with a big foot. They’ll stomp you like an errant palmetto bug every time. Splat. Squash.
The only good thing about this episode is that it gave me a reason to use a title that’s been in my virtual back pocket for several years. I am however sorry that someone lost their job because they did something public spirited. I only hope that Erroll Wiliiams won’t go Chehardy on us when he’s the single assessor.
Hmmm now where did I put my copy of Saps At Sea? This is another fine mess for the goo-goos; it’s enough to make Stan cry and blubber like a little girl.
