James Gill was an exceptional member of our local press corps. I was shocked and deeply saddened to read of his passing. His death caused me to recall the great investigative reporter, Doug Murphy, whose untimely death left an earlier hole in the news media’s ranks.

Gill reported on and later opined about the actions of our elected officials. I was fortunate to have known him during my tenure on the Jefferson Parish Public School Board. I admit to have even felt his sting on one occasion. I will desperately miss his observations on the new governor and his minions in the state Legislature.

Thank you for the front-page article on such an important contributor to our understanding of the political scene in Louisiana. He will be missed.

TERRY VERIGAN
