Louise Charboneau, Brentwood resident who filed to run for mayor in April 2017, died peacefully Wednesday night, according to her daughter Michelle Charboneau.
Charboneau had been active in Brentwood politics the past several years. She recently fought to save city and residential trees, speaking at board of aldermen and architectural review board meetings.
Michelle Charboneau said her mother didn’t want a service or visitation but rather a party to celebrate her life. It hasn’t been planned.
According to a source, Charboneau had planned to use the slogan, “The Conscience of Brentwood” in her campaign for mayor.
In 2015, she wrote in 40 South, ‘The Importance of Voting.’
Charboneau had said she would take part in a League of Women Voters mayoral forum, planned for March 13 with candidate Barbara Clements. Mayor Chris Thornton is also a candidate, but hasn’t said if he would take part. If he declines the forum will now be canceled.
