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.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
