BRIEF: Walter Guillory resigns Lafayette parks post

Walter Guillory, athletic programs supervisor for Lafayette Consolidated Government, resigned last week, the Boulet administration confirmed to the Acadiana Advocate.

Guillory’s appointment to that role in 2019 raised eyebrows, given his then recent release from federal prison on corruption charges connected to his time as director of the Lafayette Housing Authority.

In his resignation letter, he cited his desire to pursue “business ventures” as the principal motivation for his departure. No investigation related to Guillory’s conduct was in progress at the time of his resignation, according to the Advocate.
