Mayor Nic Hunter has come out with a special statement after Governor John Bel Edwards announced he was extending the stay-at-home order until May 15.

The governor has been doing daily updates and keeping those in all of the cities informed on where we are today., while the mayor has been relatively quiet lately aside from brief messages here and there.

While you can tell he is a little discouraged with the decision, he offers support to the city and encourages us all to continue to follow the guidelines and continue to be patient.

I can understand if everyone wants to get back to normal, but this is going to take some time. While there are cities that are trying to get back to a normal routine, it is better to be safe then sorry.

Hopefully, this will allow businesses to get things in order for their employees to come back to work. This is also being done to consider the customers safety.

How do you feel about the governor's extension?
