Posted By , Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Lunch With the League
at Drusilla Seafood,
3482 Drusilla Lane, Baton Rouge, LA 70809
May 17, 2012 Networking: 11:30 a.m. Program at Noon

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED - The menu item will be selected when you arrive

The Louisiana Budget: Tax cuts, exemptions, and rebates; Can Louisiana taxpayers afford them this year?"

The LWVBR's goal is to present all points of view and to have the panelists' present solutions on each issue presented, so that the audience can leave informed and in position to make up their own minds.Confirmed presenters are:

  • Kevin Kane, President, The Pelican Institute,
  • Jan Moller, Director, LA Budget Project, LANO
  • John Bel Edwards, Democratic Party Representative
  • Woody Jenkins, Republican Party Representative

It is very important that the citizens of this State learn about the LA Budget as it affects everyone in Louisiana and the reasons for tax cuts, tax exemptions and tax rebates when serious cuts are being made to vital state services, i.e. Education, Health care, etc/ with employee layoffs. LA Citizens need to hear solutions and alternatives that are being considered, which address LA financial crisis and demonstrate a concern for the average citizen, who is struggling to pay the taxes, get an education/job training for themselves and/or their children to earn a livable wage, and provide for themselves and their families.

The luncheon will be held Thursday, May 17, at Drusilla Seafood, 3482 Drusilla Lane, Baton Rouge. Doors open at 11:30 with registration and networking until the program begins at Noon. Reservations are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as this LWL will be held in the smaller Bayou Room inside the restaurant.
Tickets are $25.00 per person. LWVBR Members receive a 20% member discount.

Tickets for the luncheon may be purchased online with a credit card at WWW.LWVBR.ORG/LWL.html and going to "Pay for Lunch Here"
Reservations may be made by calling
(225) 927-2255or by e-mail at Cash or checks are accepted at the door.
Watch for notices for the "Reality Check" event, which will be the luncheon on June 5th, 2012, less than 24 hours after the close of the 2012 Legislative Session.
Informed and involved, we can make a difference.
Sharing the Spirit of League,
Jean Armstrong
