No, Republicans are now quite common in Jefferson Parish.

I hope you mean elected! If so, I'm happy for the change. I believe in a 2-party minimum political system. NOLA has been, like many large cities in the US, too long a plantation for the Democrats. Not a good state of affairs!

Yes, I was speaking of elected officials - both local government and state legislature. Also, David Vitter was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from that area.

There is a lingering quirk in south Louisiana, though - sort of a knee-jerk political support for the candidate with the French-Acadian sounding surname. That's why Kathleen Blanco began using her maiden name, Babineaux, when she ran for governor. That factor certainly helped Broussard get elected.
