From Landrieu Campaign

Senator Mary Landrieu, will speak at the 2014 Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in New Orleans, where she will outline the clear choice Louisianians have in this year’s Senate election. In her speech, Senator Landrieu will highlight some of the many accomplishments she’s achieved for Louisiana as the state’s senior Senator and how she will continue fighting for Louisiana if re-elected.

Former Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell will present the keynote speech and former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm will be the “Power Up” speaker.

Senator Landrieu will participate in a media availability prior to the start of the dinner.

The Jefferson-Jackson Dinner is hosted by the Louisiana Democratic Party.

What is Congressman Cassidy afraid of?

On July 8, Rob announced he would accept all debate and forum invitations offered to the Senate candidates.

So far, he's accepted seven that are open to all the candidates and even more that are sponsored by Republican organizations for the Republican candidates.

Yesterday, Senator Landrieu accepted four and that's great start... although she should accept more.  The people of Louisiana deserve candidates who will make themselves accessible to the voters.

But Congressman Cassidy: he's ducking all the debates.

Congressman Cassidy hasn't accepted any!

  1. Tweet @BillCassidy and tell him to stop #DuckingDebates.  He should join Rob and Senator Landrieu:

 

  1. ·  August 28th - Thibodaux Chamber of Commerce Candidate Forum
  2. ·  September 23rd - League of Women Voters Candidate Debate
  3. ·  October 2nd - WDSU Televised Senate Candidate Debate
  4. ·  October 7th - KNOE / KALB Debate
  5. ·  October 14th - Council for a Better Louisiana / Louisiana Public Broadcasting Debate
  6. ·  October 27th - WWL-TV Senate Candidate Debate
  7. ·  October 29th - Louisiana State University Manship School of Journalism Debate

And Congressman should join Rob at these Republican Forums as well:

·  August 11th - North Central Louisiana Tea Party Forum

·  September 2nd - Louisiana Federation of Republican Women Candidate Forum

·  September 4th - Mandeville Women's Republican Club Candidate Forum

·  September 18th - The Bayou Teche Republican Women's Club Debate

·  October 1st - Republican Women of St. Tammany Senate Candidate Forum

·  October 9th - Southwest Louisiana Tea Party Senate Candidate Forum

Let's keep our elected officials accountable to us - no more #DuckingDebates!

In an exclusive interview immediately following the annoucement, L. Martin of NOLA.Tv spoke with Matt Barnes, Vice President of Hunt Construction. Matt said they were excited about the opportunity, not only for their team, but all of their partners in the community. However, right now they have a lot of time to catch up in light of some of the events that took place over the summer. (The reissuing of the RFP bid proposal from the original timeline) NOLA.Tv pounded the question of local participation, and with full confidence and assurrurance, he indicated he was proud of the team in place to make sure the local workforce would be a priority both in training and opportunity.  (SEE VIDEO INTERVIEW)

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.
