Mayor’s Christmas Message

Friends and Neighbors,

On behalf of the City Council, City staff and my family, I would like to take this opportunity to wish your family all the love and blessings of the season.

One of our city’s best assets is its compassionate people. Throughout the holiday season, there have been so many acts of goodwill and generosity toward those in need. These acts of kindness enrich our community and make Opelousas a great place. 

With that said, as we gather together with our families and friends to celebrate the holidays, let us be be thankful and remember those who are less fortunate.



As we move toward a new year, 2020 will be very special and exciting for us as we celebrate our 300th anniversary and we thank you for being part of it. I am sincerely honored to continue to serve you and I look forward to the opportunities that lay ahead of us in 2020.

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:14

Wishing you a very safe and Merry Christmas,
Mayor Julius Alsandor
