Port Allen mayor hires new employee

Posted: Updated:

Mayor Deedy Slaughter tells 9News that she hired a new employee this week.

Sources say the new employee is Leslie Lawson, who is the daughter of the secretary for the mayor's brother-in-law Ralph Slaughter.

Law requires the position to be advertised for three weeks and council members be told the candidate's name and pay grade prior to the hiring.  9News has been told that did not happen until after Lawson was hired.
