Louisiana Family Forum Scores Local Legislators
The Louisiana Family Forum made waves in April by supporting the controversial Senate Bill 217—legislation that would have allowed charter schools to refuse entry to students based on sexual orientation or English language proficiency--and they’re back in the news again today with a list of likeminded legislators. The LFF posted a list of the 2012 Legislative Award Winners, and some New Orleans politicians made the cut.
The organization, led by President Gene Mills, purports to “defend faith, freedom and the traditional family in the great state of Louisiana." The LFF has also advocated for vouchers in the place of public education, ultimately seeking less regulation in Louisiana’s schools to make room for more Christian teachings in class curriculums. Today, they released their list of local politicians that have helped further their agenda.
The LFF used scorecards to divide their picks into two categories—“Outstanding Family Advocates,” and simply “Family Advocates.” Six Senators from New Orleans and Metairie won first place. Senators David Heitmeier (D) and Conrad Appel (R), and Danny Martiny all received a total of “100%” on the LFF’s scorecards of sanctity. Representatives Nick Lorusso (R), Anthony Ligi (R), Joseph Lopinto (R), and Thomas Willmot (R), were all deemed “Family Advocates,” although the LFF did not deem their records to be “outstanding.”
A few New Orleans legislators that didn’t make the list are Senators Ed Murray, J.P. Morrell, and Karen Carter Peterson along with Representatives Helena Moreno, Jared Brossett, and Neil Abramson.
