Jindal plans to meet with Assumption Parish officials about sinkhole

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Gov. Bobby Jindal will meet with Assumption Parish officials on Monday about the massive sinkhole there.

The decision was made after he dodged questions from reporter Greg Meriwether earlier this week.

Some of those living in the area and affected by the sinkhole say the governor's actions are too little, too late.

"Me and my family don't want to see Governor Jindal," said one caller to a Baton Rouge radio station. "We don't want to shake hands with him. We don't want to vote for him anymore. We really don't care what he does at this point."

Listeners flooded the Clarence Buggs Show with anti-Jindal calls.

The sinkhole has kept hundreds out of their own homes for nearly seven months now.
