Bato Rouge — City Councilman John Delgado released a statement today saying that he will give property owners currently in the unincorporated area of East Baton Rouge Parish a chance to become part of the city of Baton Rouge.
Based on recent reports and discussions with constituents, Delgado believes that breaking away would negatively impact those living in the new city.
There are many people who would be forced into the city of St. George if voters approve its creation. Delgado says he wants those people to have a choice.
