(BATON ROUGE, LA) – With family, friends and supporters at his side, Edmond Jordan formally announced today his candidacy for the Louisiana House District 29 seat.
In his announcement at the past LSU Earl K. Long Medical Center, Jordan described his campaign for office and his vision to “set our state budget in line with the priorities that enhance opportunity, not diminish it.”
“Strong economic development and the retention of high quality graduates is an absolute necessity. More specifically, I will fight to balance the disproportionate economic disparity between north and south Baton Rouge. Instead of trying to form a new city, we need to bring businesses to District 29 and help rejuvenate this district,” Jordan proclaimed. “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. 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.”
For the next several months, Jordan plans to travel throughout District 29 and expand his campaign as he reaches out across the district to like-minded citizens searching for strong, responsible and inspirational servant leadership for Louisiana House District 29 in Baton Rouge.
