(March 17, 1948 – May 25, 2014)
John Maginnis was a Leaders With Vision member, a political analyst/pundit and a world class journalist, who engaged every person who was interested and helped them understand both the policy and the personalities in Louisiana politics.
A treasured friend and colleague for over 40 years, Louisiana has lost a champion of freedom of information for the people.
John's sharp insight and wit were professionally delivered both in print and as an original speaker at our annual Reality Check Luncheon nineteen years ago. Beneath his humor, John Maginnis genuinely cared about the people of our state.
Leaders With Vision extends our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Jackie, his family, and to Jeremy Alford and the staff of LA Politics.
Truly the Dean of Louisiana politics, John and his syndicated columns will be sorely missed by all ... John Maginnis will live on through his books about Louisiana politics.
