Mrs. Nan Alessandra of Phelps Dunbar is counsel for the Mandeville Municipal Police and Mandeville Municipal Employees Civil Service Boards that I chair. She has been unfailingly professional and knowledgeable, and her legal advice has been critical to our functions as we have had to hear appeals of disciplinary actions by supervisors in several instances and have two ongoing ones now. Frankly, without her, we would not be able to function properly and could not properly address legal issues before us. She is absolutely necessary to our work and does a stellar job with it.
