ST. TAMMANY PARISH, La. — St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper officially announces that he will run for reelection.

“I wholeheartedly believe St. Tammany Parish is the best place in the state to live and raise a family,” the parish president said. “I go to work every day to make sure it stays that way.”

“We’ve made historic investments for traffic improvements, we are addressing flooding on a parish-wide scale for the first time in our history, and we continue to see lower crime rates than surrounding parishes. I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished in three years and I’m excited about what’s to come.”

He will run against challenger and recently elected mayor of Slidell, Greg Cromer.

Cooper was elected in 2019 and is in the final year of his first term in office.

Prior to becoming parish president, Cooper served as the mayor of the City of Covington for two terms.

Election Day is October 14.
