Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens


The year ended with a sad occurrence when newly elected Congressman Luke Letlow died. Another well known name, Rep. Vick Stelly, who authorized the legislation in 2002 restructuring major components of the state’s tax laws also died. Nevertheless, life marches on and we have to deal with the future of Louisiana and the nation. Outgoing Congress Ralph Abraham indicated that he would fulfill the rest of his term, if necessary, until the special election March 20, 2021.

We also have to deal with the New Orleans Second Congressional District vacancy created when Congressman Cedric Richmond resigned this month to go to work for President-elect Joe Biden. The election will be the same date.

The primary concern is redistricting. The state count should come in February, although there are no guarantees. This slows the legislature down in preparation and planning. They should finish this in 2021, as required by the state constitution.
