I am a lifelong resident of St. Landry Parish and I am
committed to my sincere desire to serve the people who call this parish – home.
As your neighbor, as a wife and mother, and as a small
business owner, I understand the great responsibility and commitment that
elected officials in this parish should possess. As candidates, we need to
maintain this commitment, not just when running a political campaign, but most
importantly, to bring this commitment to work, as your next Parish Assessor,
every single day.
Throughout my employment at the Sheriff’s Office, I have
worked with other government agencies including the Assessor’s Office. In my
work with the Assessor’s Office, I possess an in depth understanding of
property assessments and values. Because of my overall work experiences, I
possess the experience and knowledge to make a difference by continuing the improvement
of the Assessor’s Office and helping the wonderful citizens of this parish.
I know the demands and higher standard rightfully expected
of Public Servants. I am married to Steven McGovern who has himself been a
dedicate public servant for 25 years. Our greatest accomplishment ever is to be
the proud parents of our son Christian, who is eighteen years old. I am the
daughter of John and Shirley Zeringue of Opelousas, Louisiana.
I am a woman regarded as having a belief in the fair and equal treatment of all people. I am regarded as a woman of honesty, hard work and integrity. With these qualities and my professional experience, I ask for your confidence and your vote to move the Assessor’s Office in the beset direction – a direction that enhances it with efficiency and the ability to meet the needs of a rapidly changing world.
