Fayard Will Not Run For Louisiana Statewide Office Either
Written by 

Caroline Fayard will not seek statewide elective office. Here is her statement:
 


My fellow Louisianans,

After much reflection, prayer, and consultation with close friends and family, I have decided not to seek statewide elected office in 2011.

When I ran for Lieutenant Governor in 2010, I did so because of a genuine desire to promote our state, its people, and our culture.  Reflective of Louisiana’s values, I ran an authentic, hard-charging, and independent campaign, and many of you responded.

In the time since I have grown more determined than ever to work as hard as possible to make a contribution to the state I so dearly love. The paths available to making that contribution are many, but the race for Louisiana’s Secretary State is not the correct one.   My decision has not been easy, nor expected, and I hope it is seen as a demonstration of service above self.

I remain convinced there is a place for all people—regardless of age, race, gender, or party affiliation—in Louisiana’s leadership team.  All persons should be encouraged, as I have been, in their call to public service.  Now more than ever new ideas and new ways are needed to reach our full potential, and I look forward to supporting those candidates who best articulate a vision of a more inclusive and progressive Louisiana. 

I want to genuinely thank all my supporters for staying involved and realizing that Louisiana is worth it. I will be here, and I too will stay involved.  Thank you for your support, and I look forward to working with you towards a brighter future. 

Earlier in the afternoon, John Georges also opted out of a statewide run.  He had said this week he was seriously considering running for Governor.

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

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.
