Derek Dooley makes garbage friends
"I like the small town life. Ruston reminds me of Athens from my childhood. Hopefully my kids will have the same experience that I had. I’m kind of a small town guy. I enjoy the simpleness of life there. When we first got there, we needed an extra trash can to roll out to the street, so I called the mayor and he delivered one the same day. You don’t get that in Fort Lauderdale. I don’t even know who the mayor was there. Our utilities were turned on the same day. Has that ever happened to anyone in this room? There are some good things about small town living."
Those kinds of comments will win you a lot of friends in Ruston.
