Kate B., a third-grader at Airline Park Academy for Advanced Studies, won the opportunity to be Kenner “mayor for the day” at the school’s annual gala.
On the morning of June 14, 2017, Kate received a tour of Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn’s office, attended a city council agenda meeting with the mayor and Kenner city department heads and visited the city council offices. Mayor Zahn then took her on a tour of the city’s inspections and code enforcement department and she visited the city’s clerk of court’s office where she learned how these departments operate and help the residents of Kenner.
After lunch Kate toured the Kenner Police Department Complex. Kate, eight-years-old, is the daughter of John and Karen Barrilleaux.
