LWF is a proud co-sponsor of the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana’s (CRCL) US Senate Coastal Issues Forum. The US Senate Coastal Issues Forum is set to be held on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016, at the LSU Union Theater beginning at 6:00pm. Be seated by 5:45pm and no ticket is necessary. Louisiana is facing a land loss crisis that will require bold, science-based action by all of our elected officials - local, state and federal. In an effort to highlight the importance of this critical issue, CRCL has organized a Coastal Issues Forum with five of this year’s candidates for the US Senate. This will be the first time that a US senatorial forum deals exclusively with coastal issues.
CRCL invited the top six candidates, as determined by averaging four statewide polls published before August 31, 2016. Five candidates have agreed to attend—Congressman Charles Boustany, Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell, Caroline Fayard, Congressman John Fleming and Colonel Rob Maness. State Treasurer John Kennedy declined CRCL’s invitation. The forum will be streamed on the CRCL website, crcl.org. Furthermore, the forum will also be broadcast tape delayed on several cable systems, television channels and public radio affiliates.
LWF and CRCL look forward to seeing you at the Coastal Issues Forum on Oct. 6 at the LSU Union Theater!
