Mike Bayham - Taking Credit Where None is Due

Category is St. Bernard Parish
This is Bayham's latest newspaper ad. Does he really think people believe he's responsible for all he claims credit for? Anyone who has ever worked on a major project can tell you many people are involved in its planning and execution. How shallow of him to try and take credit as if he was a "one man show" of...

Oppose Louisiana House Bill 1287: Battle of New Orleans Bicentennial Commission

Once again, there's that word again to be afraid of - "commission." This time it's to form a commission for the Battle of New Orleans Bicentennial. I do believe an organizing-commemoration committee should be formed, but not on the state level. Frankly, I'm surprised Nita and Reed are going along with a bill originally and solely authored by a New Orleans legislator from the Lakeview area.

On December 19, the Daily Comet ran a story about the Lafourche Parish government announcing it was going to give businesses and residents the opportunity to receive local news and information from parish government through an email service. The need was sparked because of comments made following Hurricanes Gustav and Ike about residents who evacuated turning to email to receive...

Legislative Pay Hike

Although I agree with Bobby Jindal's statement that the Legislature is a separate body, that does not relieve Governor Jindal of his responsibility to maintain the fiscal soundness of the state. As Governor, he is the last line of defense for the people when the Legislature does something as absurd as this pay raise was. Everyone of these legislators knew...

Presidential Races

Category is St. Bernard Parish
The race for U.S. President is underway now with candidates from both sides of the aisle testing the waters. More interesting, at lease to St. Bernard Parish residents is who will continue the rebuilding effort after Hurricane Katrina.
