The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury unanimously appointed Brent Clement as interim District 15 Police Juror at a May 20 Special Meeting.

He takes over the seat of Tony Tramonte, 54, who unexpectedly passed away on April 29.

It’s a role with which Clement is more than familiar – he held the District 12 seat from 2000-2008. He also served as interim District 12 Police Juror from June 2011 until January 2012, filling the unexpired term ofEllis Hassien, who had resigned.

“I am honored to have been chosen by the Police Jury to represent and serve the people of District 15. It is a great responsibility,” Clement said. “I am committed to upholding the values and principles of Tony Tramonte, and I will work to ensure that our Parish continues to thrive.”

A special election will be held on Nov. 5, and, if necessary, on Saturday, Dec. 7 (runoff) to fill the remaining unexpired period of the current police jury term, which ends in 2027.
