Times Editorial: Patrick Jackson should be replaced as School Board attorney


Also last week, the board started dealing with a potential conflict of interest regarding its attorney, Patrick Jackson, who on occasion has represented both of the above contractors (Cochran Construction and Air Repair). Jackson said anytime there was a potential problem, "I withdrew."
Jackson acknowledged to KTBS News that he was present during a closed-door meeting last March where school system administrators gave Air Repair a $1 million, no-bid contract to do mold remediation and repairs at the Haughton school. Jackson, in a bit of understatement, said he knew it didn't look good that he was present when one of his clients, the School Board, was hiring another client, Air Repair, to fix something built by another client, Cochran Construction.
Whatever the outcome of the board's review of Jackson — who represents several public bodies including the Bossier Police Jury — it would seem a replacement would be in order.

(Those other bodies include the Bossier Parish Police Jury; Webster Parish Police Jury; Bossier Metropolitan Planning Commission, Bossier Tax Assessor; Webster District Attorney's Office; Bossier-Webster District Attorney's Office and the Webster Parish Convention and Visitor's Center.)

Jackson’s role was also featured in a news story on KTBS on Friday. Watch the video.

Channel 3 also reported that one man, Micah Tucker, put his (request for information) in writing. Tucker gave a wide ranging public records request to board President Jack Raley. He's asking for hundreds of documents concerning Patrick Jackson, ArkLaTex Air Repair and Cochran Construction. That's the company that built Haughton Middle School. The school's roof has leaked almost since the first day. Jackson represented Cochran as well as Air Repair and the school board. Tucker says citizens deserve answers to their questions about emergency repairs to the school last year for a mold problem and how that was handled by the board. Jackson denies any conflict of interest, but won't go into details citing attorney client privilege.

  2. I've known this man for many years. He is a good man with great moral character. Your dead wrong about him....

  3. Patrick Jackson has been an invaluable attorney for Bossier over the past several years. People that know him are aware of his intense desire to do the right thing for the citizens of our community.
