fayard foster campbell 2The Alliance for Good Government has announced its endorsement of Caroline Fayard for U.S. Senate.

The Alliance endorsement is one of the most coveted in the New Orleans area.

 

 

Here is a press release from the Alliance:

The Alliance for Good Government on Tuesday night announced their endorsement of U.S. Senate candidate Caroline Fayard. Deliberating for nearly an hour following a lengthy forum, during which they heard from over a dozen candidates or their representatives, the Alliance came together to support Fayard as the best choice for senate this fall.
Now in its 49th year, the Alliance's purpose is "to foster, protect, and promote the welfare and interest of all the citizens of the state of Louisiana by bringing together thinking citizens into an organization which will promote public policies which benefit the New Orleans Metropolitan area, the state of Louisiana, and the United States of America." After hearing from candidates from across the political spectrum in an open forum, their membership determined Caroline Fayard was the best candidate to do just that as our next United States Senator.
“I am grateful and honored to be endorsed by the Alliance for Good Government,” said Caroline Fayard. “Their support signals a tremendous validation for our campaign, and for our commitment to fighting for equal pay for equal work, to raising the minimum wage, and to building a brighter future for Louisiana’s children.”

A good review of the forum can be found written by Stephanie Grace. Here is an excerpt:

Tuesday night's Alliance for Good Government U.S. Senate forum in New Orleans was just about everything you'd expect from a gathering that tried to accommodate all 24 candidates; it was long, unwieldy, but also intermittently revealing.

Not everyone showed up. U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany and Treasurer John Kennedy sent surrogates to speak on their behalf, but questions were reserved for the candidates themselves, and there were still enough of those to fill two consecutive panels.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
