Mayor's Office

Mayor Wendy
 Mayor Wendy O'Quin Perrette
 
Welcome to our website. I hope you will find it useful and informative, whether you are a citizen of our city or someone planning a visit or relocation to our city.
 
The City of Bogalusa is at a crossroads from our storied past, to our bright future. Ever since our virgin pine forests caught the attention of the Goodyear family of New York, we have been a city whose economy was driven by forest products. Today we are proud that International Paper operates a paper mill and converting plant in Bogalusa.
 
While forest products are still a major driver of our economy, we have become a regional center for healthcare. Our Lady Of Angels Hospital offers a variety of healthcare specialties and we are tremendously proud of the Rural Family Practice residency program that trains competent and dedicated family physicians to serve in rural and often under-served populations. We look to this combination of programs to establish Bogalusa as a premier health-care center for southeast Louisiana. 
 
I am proud to be the mayor of this city where family, friendships and faith are our cornerstones. Our faith community is strong and diverse, our people are friendly and our community is like a family. We are proud of our Northshore Technical and Community College, Sullivan Campus, which is one of the fastest growing schools of its size in the nation. We are educating our community today for the jobs that will drive our city's economy tomorrow.
 
You will find a variety of shopping experiences from the nationwide concerns such as Wal-Mart to small locally owned shops and restaurants. Just the names will make you smile, "The Green Goat" and the "La Petite LaRiche" are two of our shops with intriguing names and you will find wonderful eateries throughout city. Every door you enter, will lead you into a friendly place that will make you feel at home.
 
We are bordered on the east by the Pearl River which offers many recreational opportunities. Many parks and playgrounds are present in our City. Cassidy Park's new performance pavilion and the implementation of an exciting, forward looking master plan will transform our park. The park is home to some of our most revered festival events such as Festival in the Park, Wild Game and Barbeque Cook-Off, Christmas in the Park and our newest festival, the Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival. Add to that the festivity of a Mardi Gras parade that is the culmination of the Carnival season and a Fourth of July Celebration with a pageant, parade and fireworks, and you have got small town living at its best.
 
We have much to be thankful for in our City. We are working hard to protect our investments, create new opportunities for our citizens and investors and make progress in providing economic opportunities and improving our quality of life. As Mayor, I pledge to always work to promote our City and to Build a Better Bogalusa.

Sincerely,

 

Wendy O'Quin Perrette
