Attorney announces candidacy at demolished hospital
Jordan seeks to represent Dist. 29
Using the partially demolished LSU Earl K Long Hospital as his backdrop on yesterday (July 15), Brusly attorney Edmond Jordan announced his candidacy for the Louisiana House District 29.
“I will fight to balance the disproportionate economic disparity between north and south Baton Rouge….We need to bring businesses to District 29 and help rejuvenate this district,” Jordan told the small gathering of supporters.
“If we do things the way that they’ve always been done, then things will remain the way that they’ve always been… It’s time to change what we’ve been doing. Let’s work together to stop the decline in the quality of life for the citizens of Louisiana,” Jordan told the small gathering of supporters.
State Representative Regina Ashford Barrow has termed out of the District 29 seat after having represented the area since 2005.
For Jordan this is an opportunity for meaningful change.
He said an individual who knows how to fight for the best interest of people should hold the office of State Representative.
“The time is now to elect such an individual. I am that individual,” he said.
Jordan said he will travel throughout the district, which covers a portion of North Baton Rouge through West Baton Rouge, and reach “like-minded citizens searching for strong, responsible and inspirational servant leadership” for the district.
