Letters to Leaders


Friday, May 21, 2021

Good morning,

Yesterday, I presented my State of the Parish Address before a sold-out St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce event.  In attendance were many local dignitaries, community leaders and members of the Chamber of Commerce.

In my address, I covered a wide variety of topics including: our drainage and infrastructure projects, mental health initiatives, our Comprehensive Plan update process, improvements at the Department of Animal Services, and more!  We looked back on 2020 and the events that taught us so much, but more importantly, we talked about the first quarter of this year, and the progress that we have made thus far.  If you would like to stay in the know about what is happening in our Parish, you may subscribe to our newsletter here.

This morning I will be attending a ceremonial groundbreaking at the Safe Haven Campus for the Training and Education Center.  I will be joined by Governor John Bel Edwards, Archbishop Gregory Aymond, and the Safe Haven Foundation Chairman Jack Donahue. All are invited to attend the 11 a.m. event.

The Safe Haven Training and Education Center will provide innovative learning and focus on behavioral health, as well as provide a state-of-the-art meeting and conference space.

The Training and Education Center is scheduled to be completed in the Winter of 2022.  For more information about the Safe Haven Campus, please visit www.safehavenstp.org.

As always, should you have questions or if I may be of assistance to you in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Stay Safe!


Michael B. Cooper
Parish President
