This is a special appeal to the dedicated, hard-working State Troopers who read this blog and who are fed up with the way LSP Command in Baton Rouge has repeatedly embarrassed you, humiliated you, and punished you while taking care of their own.
Those of you who read LouisianaVoice on a regular basis know that the criticisms of LSP Command is not directed at you but instead is aimed at improving your morale and restoring the respect once bestowed upon you and your profession by Louisiana citizens.
It is in that spirit that I include you in this request to help support LouisianaVoice in its continued efforts to investigate official wrongdoing at all levels of state government—not just within the Department of Public Safety.
Every person who reads LouisianaVoice has a stake in cleaning up Louisiana’s sordid political image—from the governor’s office down to local sheriffs, police juries, school boards and mayors’ offices.
I am a retired state employee on a fixed income, so my financial resources are limited.
And it takes time and money to run down the many leads I get from readers and to pay for public records that I am constantly requesting. Occasionally, I even have to resort to filing litigation to obtain records.
This takes money.
LouisianaVoice is in the midst of a fundraiser and I humbly ask that you chip in what you can to help support efforts to keep you informed about your state and local government.
There are only two fundraisers per year and your help is desperately needed and greatly appreciated.
