LHA Board Member Leon Simmons says he has no intention of resigning from the Housing Authority. This week Simmons has been heavily criticized for his conduct at a Monday night LHA meeting.
That's where Simmons threw a cup of coffee at a group of reporters and attempted to block a TV camera.
City-Parish President Joey Durel has been calling for Simmons to step down, saying that kind of behavior is unacceptable, but Simmons has apologized and explained that his frustration came from his passion for LHA.
