Written by 

jindal-landrieuLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu issued the following statements on the passing of Lindy Boggs, former Congresswoman of Louisiana.

 

Governor Jindal said, “As the first woman elected to Congress in Louisiana, and as the first female Chair of the Democratic National Convention, Lindy no doubt left her mark on history.

“She lived a life of service, carrying on for those who couldn't and speaking up for those who didn't have a voice in the halls of Congress. Lindy was a true fighter, but she did it with incredible grace and the people of Louisiana are grateful for her service.

“The thoughts and prayers of my family and of the people of Louisiana are with Lindy's family.”

U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., today released the following statement on the passing of former U.S Representative Lindy Boggs:

“Our dear friend Lindy will be remembered for generations to come for her selfless and distinguished service to New Orleans, Louisiana and our entire country as a wife, mother, congressional leader, ambassador extraordinaire and trailblazer for women everywhere. She has set the gold standard for public service. Our state is in mourning but also in celebration of a life well lived.”
