The President of the Caddo Parish Commission wants Parish Administrator Dr. Woody Wilson suspended.

Matthew Linn has placed a measure on Monday’s agenda challenging Dr. Wilson’s residency.

Heres what the resolution says:
WHEREAS, the Caddo Parish Administrator, Dr. Woodrow Wilson,Jr., is not in compliance with Ordinance 5735 of 2013, which requires the Caddo Parish Administrator and certain other Parish employees to reside within Caddo Parish;
WHEREAS, the evidence showing that the Caddo Parish Administrator is not in compliance with Ordinance 5735 is as follows:
1) Administrator Wilson still maintains a homestead exemption on a home in Bossier Parish, Louisiana;
2) Commissioner Matthew Linn visited the residence in Caddo Parish claimed by Administrator Wilson and found the residence to be empty;
3) Commissioner Matthew Linn has been told that the Caddo Parish residence claimed by Administrator Wilson has always been empty and appears to be a display apartment used for showings to potential residents;

WHEREAS, Administrator Wilson is registered to vote in Caddo Parish, and this registration appears to contradict the maintenance of a homestead exemption in Bossier Parish;
WHEREAS, Administrator Wilson was asked during his employment evaluation in June of 2015 whether he resided in Caddo Parish, to which he responded affirmatively, thus appearing to intentionally mislead Parish Commissioners as to his residency.
WHEREAS, it appears that Administrator Wilson is not in compliance with the requirement of his employment that he reside in Caddo Parish, and thus should be removed from the office of Caddo Parish Administrator.

The measure also calls for the appointment of  Randy Lucky as interim Caddo Parish
Administrator.
