Constitution Party celebrates a victory
“On December 6, Randy Fontenot, a registered member of the Constitution Party, defeated his Democratic opponent in the race for Chief of Police for the City of Eunice,” touted Constitution Party national Chairman Frank Fluckiger in an announcement last week, “Our party’s success rests on the strategy of building bridges with voters at the local level so they can see close-up how a candidate transforms our platform into common sense government. Such victories will ensure we have experienced candidates vying for higher office.”
The always-active National Chair goes on to point supporters to the Constitution Party’s latest edition of their monthly newsletter, The Constitutionist. In the publication, Fluckiger proudly confirms that Police Chief-elect Randy Fontenot isn’t the only registered CP member currently elected to local office in the state. “Randy Fontenot is the second elected Constitution Party official in Louisiana,” the National Chair notes, “Party member Ronnie Broughton was re-elected to the Webster Parish (a County in other states) School Board in November.”
