(from St. Tammany Parish Government) – As was released by the United States Attorney’s office earlier today, Peter Galvan will resign as the St. Tammany Parish Coroner effective Friday, October 18, 2013.

“Today, we are glad that justice will be served, and the situation brought on by Dr. Galvan will be corrected,” said Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President. “We have worked for months cooperating with the authorities to provide them the information they need to arrive at this decision. This administration and the Parish Council are eager to move forward with financial oversight of a new Coroner’s Office, a coroner’s office that the citizens of this Parish deserve.”

Parish Government and the Council have recently assumed greater oversight of the financials of the Coroner’s office as a direct response to legislation that was passed in the last session to reverse a 2007 law that allowed the Coroner to oversee his own finances.

“I have consistently said that government should work with efficiency and effectiveness, and there is no place for a public servant that goes down the road of abuse and squander,” said Brister.
