Written by 

ErnieAlexanderBaton Rouge - Former  Republican State Representative Ernie Alexander passed away Tuesday night after a bout with cancer. Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere, Jr. released the following statement regarding the death of Ernie Alexander, a former member of the Louisiana House of Representatives:

“Ernie Alexander was a true public servant who never wavered in his conservative beliefs,” Villere said.  ”Even after Ernie retired from public service, he continued to serve the Republican Party and the conservative movement as a leader of the Lafayette Republican Party and an avid supporter of the Tea Party movement.  On behalf of the Republican Party of Louisiana, I’d like to express our deepest condolences to the Alexander family.  He will certainly be missed.”

RNC National Committeeman Ross Little, Jr.'s statement on the death of  Alexander:

"Ernie and I were once competitors in an election, but he proved to be a true friend and conservative ally through the years," Little said. "Through his many years of service as a public school teacher, Ernie earned the love and respect of thousands of Lafayette children. He was a true gentleman and I am honored to have called him friend. My prayers and thoughts are with Shirley and the entire Alexander family during this difficult time."

Republican Party of Louisiana Vice-Chairman Charlie Buckels' statement on the death of Alexander:

“Ernie Alexander, at both the state and local level, was one of our most effective and respected Conservative Republican leaders,” Buckels said.  “His integrity should be a model for all public officials.”

Alexander's passion for the Founding Principles of our nation led him to a successful public service career. A longtime public school teacher, Alexander served on the Lafayette City Council before representing the 43rd State House District in the Louisiana Legislature from 2000 until 2008.  Alexander also dedicated his time and talents to the Republican Party as he served on the Republican State Central Committee, was chairman of the Lafayette Republican Parish Executive Committee and was a dedicated member of the Republican Party of Louisiana Trust.

Funeral services will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Friday at the St. Pius X Catholic Church in Lafayette. Visitation will be held on Thursday from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. and on Friday morning beginning at 8 a.m.  at the Delhomme Funeral Home on Bertrand Drive.

Alexander is survived by his wife of 57 years, Shirley Champagne Alexander, and by one brother, John Arlen Alexander and his wife, Carolyn Kimball Alexander.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
