“I remain committed to serving our community and improving the quality of life for all citizens,” Robottom said.  “This includes finalizing critical infrastructure improvements and securing the economic future of our residents and businesses. By restoring the public’s trust in government, promoting transparency and maintaining sound fiscal policies, the groundwork has been laid for continued progress.”

Robottom was first elected in 2010 to fill an unexpired term of office and was re-elected for a full term in 2011.  She is one of three female parish presidents in Louisiana.

For 23 years, Robottom worked in the St. John the Baptist Parish school system as a speech-language pathologist.  She served four years as St. John’s chief administrative officer and chief financial officer before working as parish manager for Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government and two years with the State of Louisiana as the director of the Governor’s Office of Community Programs.

“I’ve always had the desire to help people and as your parish president I have the opportunity to help my community,” Robottom said.  “I’d welcome the opportunity to continue the work of the parish and see the many vital projects underway to completion.  I would sincerely appreciate your vote and support.”
