In anticipation of our interview with Lake Charles Mayor Randy Roach, I would like to share this with you. As my first employer, the City of Lake Charles granted me more learning experiences than a young man could ever hope for. As a junior at LaGrange High School, I began my career on the 10th floor of City Hall. From working closely with the mayor and his administration, to being able to submit my suggestions and vision for the Lakefront and downtown districts and seeing those suggestions incorporated, I was given a special opportunity to love my city in a way few get to. With being granted access to the Muller's Building each day after school to follow the restoration process of one of the city's most believed jewels, to the ribbon cutting ceremony of our lakefront promenade, I cannot properly express my appreciation.
After leaving the nest and going on to later pursue radio and television news and other endeavors, I returned to the City of Lake Charles in a different capacity working closely with the Arts & Culture Department. I saw firsthand what it takes to organize and successfully complete some of the most beloved staple events like 'Downtown at Sundown', 'Red, White, Blue & You' and the 'Lake Charles Light Up the Lake Christmas Festival' along with assisting in unloading and displaying artworks from around the United States in 1911 Historic City Hall, while also utilizing my media skills to document the displays; I will forever be grateful.
As Mayor Roach and many of his administration go on to the next chapter of their lives I wanted to take a moment and speak with Mayor Roach highlighting the most important piece of a community. Mayor Roach has been a true mentor, inspiration and positive figure in my life and I am so grateful he granted my request. After serving 4 terms as mayor, 17 years total come this May, he will be missed.
As an aside, I greatly appreciate the men and women who make up the City of Lake Charles Administration and team. Look forward to our full interview coming soon. - Bray J #HeyBrayJExclusive #VisitLakeCharles
