My friend, Rep. Rick Edmonds, reached out and asked that I pass along this message:
A Word From My Friend, Rep. Rick Edmonds
“I hope you’re doing well. Once again, we find ourselves helping our communities deal with a crisis situation. It certainly can be taxing dealing with the level of devastation that we have felt over the past couple of years, not to mention the challenges and abrupt situations we are all having to face as a result of Covid-19.
With this in mind, I am asking for your help for my colleagues in the legislature. Every year at this time Louisiana Family Forum hosts a great event - the Legislative Awards Gala - for pro-family votes in the Legislature. I have contacted Gene Mills and requested that the event not be canceled because of Ida, but modified to respect the moment that we find ourselves in. It is my belief that many of my colleagues and community leaders could use an evening of hope and encouragement. During tough times, we all need to be reminded of the good news.
As Master of Ceremonies, I have asked Gene if we could reach out to all members of the Legislature and invite them to attend this night dedicated to Hope. I thought it would be an amazing gesture that those of us that are set to be recognized would be the ones that reach out across all aisles, honoree or not, and request their attendance.
It is my hope and prayer that this Night of Hope would serve as a refresher for many.
If you are willing, I am asking you to make a few phone calls and send a few texts. We feel this moment is for all elected officials and should be well attended." - Rep. Rick Edmonds
