In state's poorest city, job creation agency hasmet twice in two years


State Rep. Marcos Devers, one of five candidates challenging Lantigua’s re-election bid in the Sept. 17 preliminary election, agreed with Laplante that at least some of the LRA’s inactivity is rooted in what he said is inactivity at City Hall.

“It’s been doing nothing for two years — that’s embarrassing,” Devers said. “That’s why we need an administration that’s professionalized at all levels. All those agencies have to be filled and people should be doing their work. We need to move the city forward, really forward, in having development carried out in the proper way.”
