St. Pierre, who traveled to the Nation’s capital with Alderman Danny Manuel and Alderman R. J. St. Pierre, said he presented a plan to resurface King Avenue to the State’s Congressional delegation and that he recently received word that Congressman Cedric Richmond’s office is on board to try to get the Town some assistance in repairing the road.
