Brian Brennan seeks Kenner Metropolis Council seat


Brian Brennan, a Kenner insurance manager who served a 10-month interim appointment on the City Council last year, has announced his candidacy for a seat on the council. Brennan, 58, said he will seek the 5th District post that Dominick Impastato III quit this fall upon moving to the Jefferson Parish Council.

The election is scheduled March 24. Kelly Hand is serving in the 5th District seat by appointment until Impastato’s successor is elected.

The council appointed Brennan, a Republican, to the Division A at-large seat in January 2016 after Keith Conley resigned to become chief operating officer in Parish President Mike Yenni’s administration. Brennan, manager of the O’Connor Insurance Group, said he worked on the council to limit multi-family housing and attack blight. He supported providing more money for the Kenner’s police and fire departments and voted for improvements to its City Park.
