Kenneth Gerdes

I was fortunate to work with Bryan at Slidell City Court while I served as Clerk of Court. He has outstanding legal and financial credentials as well as vast experience. He is man of character, integrity, fairness, open mindedness and common sense. All these are necessary qualities of a judge. He has a passion of commitment to this court and the citizens of the 8th and 9th Wards. As judge he will serve us honorably. Bryan has my vote. Please support Bryan Haggerty for next judge of City Court of Slidell.

Mark Kingsberry

“Mr. Haggerty is fair and honest and would make a great judge!”

J. Michael Daly Jr

“I’ve worked with Bryan and opposed him in Court for many years. He knows more about juvenile law than any other candidate; knows more about civil law and collections than any other candidate; knows more about running a large office with many employees than any other candidate. Best person for this important job.”

Nancy Bousfield

“Bryan Haggerty is fair and honest person. I truly believe he will be an asset to the people of Slidell for years to come.”

Role of City Court of East St. Tammany

About City Court of East St. Tammany

Though City Court of Slidell was first established in 1964, it did not have its own home until the current Courthouse was built in 1998 at Bouscaren and Fourth Streets. Until then, it operated out of a second floor space in the Slidell Police Department.

In those early years, the number of cases at the Court were small and were managed on a part-time basis by the first Judges on the Court. That is no longer true; Court is now held five days a week as East St. Tammany Parish has seen its population grow substantially since those early years.

The name of the Court can be misleading as its jurisdiction is not just within the city limits of Slidell but serves all of Wards 8 and 9, which are essentially all of East St. Tammany Parish. 

In 2020, Judge Bryan Haggerty worked with the state legislators to have the misnomer cleared up by re-naming it the City Court of East St. Tammany.
