Jindal, Landrieu, St. Pierre to lead us
Jindal and Landrieu were elected governor and lieutenant governor and St. Pierre became the parish president-elect when his opponent in the runoff, “Snookie” Faucheux, pulled out of the race Monday.
Jindal is the first Indian-American to ever be elected governor of a state in this nation. It speaks well of the voters in Louisiana where intolerance is not a lifestyle that impugnes our ability to choose good officials.
There were others in the race who, ordinarily, would have been good reform candidates. But Jindal had built his credentials on the fact that, as an intelligent person, his vision of government was at a higher level than that of normal politicians. He would seek what is best for our state.
Landrieu’s aggressive demeanor and energy in pursuing many objectives have benefitted our economy in the past four years. He should pair well with Jindall’s enthusiasm.
St. Pierre, having been on the council in the past, is knowledgeable about parish business. His attitude has always been wanting to put our best foot forward.
Other officials were also elected in the primary but the election job isn’t finished yet. There are still many offices to be filled in the general election on November 17. So start getting prepared now.
