My Vision for Mandeville

Posted June 2019

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is the first in a series of communications where I plan to share my ideas for becoming Mayor and my vision for the future of Mandeville.

Together, with your support and your input, we can build a better future for our city.

I see three key areas that City Hall should address:

  • Our Local Economy we need to be business friendly and work to replace the shrinking retail of our city. These tax dollars are important to all of us and the services provided do enhance our life here on the north shore. A solid business base is also important because these business owners and managers are our future neighbors. We will talk more about his in the months to come.
  • Infrastructure – ask any local politician and they will say “drainage” is a key issue for any election.  Well, this comes along with living next to a beautiful lake and among the natural wetlands that surround our neighborhoods. We benefit from the natural beauty but also need to persistently work to protect our homes from the difficulties of these natural resources. In fact, city infrastructure pertains to local “information highways” as much as it does to our traffic management. As mayor, I will work on all of these fronts to plan ahead for our needs of tomorrow as well as today.
  • Safety / Crime – we have a talented city police force and they do a good job serving our community.  But Mandeville faces a changing set of problems and we need to adapt our police work accordingly.

I pledge to work proactively with the Chief of Police on new programs to deter drugs and criminal activity. City Hall will be part of the solution.

In closing, I want to thank you for spending a few minutes reading this blog. Other topics and more information will follow. Please sign up with your email address to stay in touch.  

I am Chad Bordelon. I live here, work here and raise my family here in Mandeville. I don’t need a job – I’ve enjoyed a successful career here as a small business owner.

Instead, I am called to serve and with you help, I want to become your next Mayor in Mandeville.
