In response to Senator Jack Donahue's recent call to constituents and local elected officials to help protect Louisiana's 1st Congressional District, Rep. Kevin Pearson (R-76) issued the following st
"I am working in Baton Rouge with Sen. Jack Donahue and other local lawmakers to keep the Northshore in the 1st Congressional District. I know that Senators Donahue, Crowe, and Nevers are working tirelessly in the Senate to advocate for a plan that keeps the Northshore together and when the bill is up for consideration in the House, I will do the same.
"Governor Jindal has not been an ally during this process as he continues to push for the creation of two long Congressional Districts in North Louisiana.I encourage my constituents and all Northshore residents to flood the Governor's office with calls and e-mails stressing the importance of keeping the entire Northshore in the 1st Congressional District. The Governor needs to hear your voice."
