Louisiana Political Hall of Fame.

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I had the distinct honor this past weekend to be inducted into the Louisiana political hall of Fame.  Each year, the board of directors selects several honorees to recognize who have been actively involved in Louisiana Politics.  The Hall location is in Winnfield, Louisiana, home of former Louisiana governors Huey and Earl Long.  The museum there is filled with memorabilia collected over the years.  You can see some highlights from my special night below.

I’m joined by two other new members-Chief Justice of the La. Supreme Court Kitty Kimball, and Ralph Pearlman, who oversaw Louisian’s budget for many years.

Louisiana Fifth District Congressman Rodney Alexander stopped by for a visit.

The Long name is quite special in this part of the state, and I’m joined at the reception by State Senator Gerald Long, and his cousin, former State Representative Jimmy Long.

One of the instigating forces behind the Hall of Fame is Washington lobbyist and native Louisianan Ted Jones.  As you can see from the photo above, Ted is a multi-talented guy and a long time friend.

Curent Louisiana Secretry of State Tom Schedler stopped by for a visit in from of my exhibit.  I kid Tom that he has some big shoes to fill following my tenure in the job back in the 1980s.

Daughter Gentry joins me for the special occasion.   She remembers well being quite a campaigner in years past.

Just a few campaign items gathered up over 28 years in public office.  It will be nice to have them out of boxes and displayed for years to come.
