Last year, I wrote several columns and letters in The Daily Advertiser and other publications promoting Bobby Jindal as the strong reform leader we needed as the next governor. During the last two weeks, Gov. Jindal has been anything but strong, and, obviously, with the arrogant, bully tactics of the majority of our legislators, no real reform has taken place in Baton Rouge.
I would say this to Gov. Jindal: The people of
Louisiana are demanding that you hold to your campaign promise, the promise that you would prohibit any legislative pay raise that comes effective before the next legislative election. I supported and voted for you, but if you don’t veto Senate Bill 672, you will never receive my vote again, and I will certainly apologize to those to whom I expressed support for your candidacy.
