Late last week, Governor John Bel Edwards preemptively said he would not support several LFF-backed bills that would protect women’s sports and bar doctors from using children as medical experiments, if the bills made it to his desk. We urge you to contact Governor Edwards’ office and ask him to reconsider. Remind him that protection of actual women and children is his sworn duty -- not the advocacy of radical sexual politics!
If you live in St. Tammany Parish, there’s a meeting TONIGHT at 6:30 PM that you may want to attend. The Slidell City Council will consider a resolution supporting a proposed land-based casino in St. Tammany. The gambling industry will not let this proposal go away. If you don’t want crime and poverty in your neighborhood, then please make plans to be there tonight and make your voice heard.
We urge the council to reject the encroachment of gambling into Slidell along with the negative economic and social costs of gambling. This proposal doesn’t just affect residents of Slidell – it would be placed on a ballot for all of St. Tammany Parish. Please click here to reach out to Slidell City Council members and Slidell’s Mayor, Greg Cromer, and let them know where you stand!
