Military Road Alliance to Hear
From St. Tammany Parish President Pat Brister

Slidell, LA – The Military Road Alliance (M.R.A.), an umbrella organization of a dozen homeowner associations in eastern St. Tammany Parish, representing over 4000 residents, will hear from Parish President Pat Brister at its upcoming meeting.   

This monthly meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, August 15th, in the cafeteria of Oak Park Village, an assisted living center at 2200 East Gause Blvd., Slidell.

Brister will discuss the general state of the parish. After her presentation, M.R.A. delegates will have an opportunity to ask questions about her discussion and other ongoing parish issues.

As always, M.R.A. meetings are open to the public as a service to help keep area residents informed on issues that affect their daily lives. Monthly speakers address area economic development, roads and highways, drainage and flooding issues, the ongoing activities of the parish government and school board, legislative matters, and any upcoming elections and initiatives.

M.R.A. designated delegates report back to their individual homeowner associations on matters taken up by the M.R.A. The Military Road Alliance, in continuous existence since 1979, now embraces over 4,000 residents in the general area east of Slidell.                  

Residents of area subdivisions should contact their homeowner association officers to consider joining the M.R.A. to stay informed, and especially to have input and join in taking positions on upcoming parishwide and community issues.

However, without paid dues of $35 per year and submitting a list of delegates, these subdivisions can attend monthly meetings, but will not be able to vote on M.R.A. positions throughout the year.  While the M.R.A. does not endorse individual candidates for office, the organization often takes positions on area tax and millage initiatives.

Subdivision inquiries about joining the Military Road Alliance, and questions about this meeting, can be directed to current M.R.A. acting president Jim McCarty, at
