There is widespread, bipartisan support for action in addressing Louisiana's coastal land loss crisis, according to a new poll released today by BDPC, LLC + Pinsonat and Restore the Mississippi River Delta. Of note, 79 percent of coastal voters said they support sediment diversions, large-scale engineering projects that would be strategically operated to direct sediment and fresh water from the Mississippi River into nearby wetlands, building and maintaining thousands of acres of land over time. Only 5 percent of those voters oppose. Additionally, an overwhelming 97 percent of Louisiana coastal voters say that the state should still work to maintain as much coastal land as possible even if the coast cannot be restored to its previous footprint.

Just what is a media consultant? What role does he or she play in a campaign? What type of media is used now during a political campaign, small and large? What is the role of digital media in winning or at least competing in an election?

Without doubt, one of the most highly-recognized and demanded media strategists in Louisiana and particularly, surrounding the Jefferson Parish and New Orleans region is Greg Buisson of Buisson Creatives.

ELECTIONS CAMPAIGNS 3Has technology replaced the need for shaking hands, kissing babies, making country fairs, often described as "retail politics"?  How should campaign officials and candidates optimize the “retail politics” experiences?  What are some of the issues all politicians should consider when considering whether to employ a pollster and when determining whom to hire? What is the political climate--has it changed over the past year and if so, what should candidates with upcoming races do to position themselves in their next election run?

The controversy over Nike shoes, Colin Kapernick, the NFL, President Donald Trump, respecting the American Flag, peaceful protest, rights of public entities responding to controversial political decisions made by private industry, continues.  Howover as for now, it appears that one of the players who emerged in this flap has taken a knee.

Allegations of sexually abusive clergy are pouring in worldwide.  Unfortunately, the roots of this terrible tragedy engulfing the Catholic Church have strong ties to the Bayou Sate.  Here's how National Public Radio in Minnesota titled their investigative story on sexual abuse by priests: “It All Began in Lafayette, Louisiana.” And it did, back in 1984.
