Louisiana’s Treasurer Kennedy reports $3.5 for elections
Written by 

john kennedyWhile Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy has not declared which statewide office he might be seeking  this fall with statewide elections, he has a healthy war-chest, in hand.

Kennedy reported today that his campaign committee has raised over $4 million in the current election cycle for use in a future statewide campaign.

 

"I'm very grateful to my financial supporters for the confidence they have placed in me," said Treasurer Kennedy.

The most recent report filed with the Louisiana Board of Ethics shows the Kennedy Campaign raised over $700,000 in 2014 alone, and ended the year with close to $3.5 million cash on hand.  View the report by clicking HERE.

Treasurer Kennedy is currently serving his fourth term as Louisiana's chief fiscal watchdog. 

There has been speculation that Kennedy might not seek statewide office, but, perhaps a vacant US Senate position, should current Senator, David Vitter be elected Governor later this year.

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.
