A Message from Mayor Freddy Drennan St. Tammany Parish Government

It is my pleasure to serve you and this great city.

Over the years, I have been very fortunate to travel around this country representing the great City of Slidell. Over the course of traveling, I always meet people who ask me where I’m from. Here’s what I tell them. I live in a city that has some of the best schools in the state of Louisiana. We have a very low crime rate, thanks to our great, nationally accredited police department.

We live in a city that has over 30 parks and playgrounds, and it’s not unusual to see kids playing or moms walking and jogging late at night or early in the morning. We live in a city with a strong sense of community. People live together and work together. They understand the meaning of quality of life. We live in a city where cultural activities thrive. On any given weekend, there is an abundance of things to do, from free concerts in Heritage Park, art exhibits in area galleries to festivals in Olde Towne. We live in a city that has some of the best food in the world. You want it, we have it.

Dear Citizens,

We live in a city that provides all the amenities of a great metropolitan area, with the shopping, entertainment, sports, and benefits that a big city provides. We live in a city that’s 40 minutes away from the beautiful beaches of the Mississippi Gulf Coast where you can find numerous casinos and the great food and entertainment they provide. Louisiana is a sportsman’s paradise, and Slidell is no exception. We have five fresh water rivers and plenty of bayous in our parish. We have access to one of the largest salt water lakes in the United States, and that lake flows into the Gulf of Mexico, which has some of the best fishing in the country. What more could you ask for? I am proud to call Slidell my home. It truly is the best kept secret in the south. Your mayor,

Linear Feet of Roads Paved in 2016
