GOP Rallies to Piazza to Shake Up Dec. 5 Runoff for Mayor-President

The Republican Party of East Baton Rouge Parish has announced its endorsement of businessman Jordan Piazza for Mayor-President in the Nov. 3 election. 

Republican chairman Woody Jenkins said, “Jordan Piazza represents a new generation of leadership for our parish.  Other better-known Republicans have failed to generate excitement in the race for Mayor-President. Jordan Piazza is running on a strong conservative platform. He is an exciting, inspirational candidate who can generate the enthusiasm the campaign needs. He has a strong, clear vision for the future based on solid conservative principles.  We are excited and very proud to recommend Jordan Piazza to the voters.  He has committed to many positive changes and reforms,” including

•Adding 100 new police officers to the Baton Rouge City Police Department and increasing pay for police by $10,000 a year across the board.  Officers currently start at only $32,000.

•If the Governor and Mayor-President have not completely lifted the shutdown and the mask order by Jan. 1 when he is sworn in, he will lift those orders on his first day in office.

• He will respect the will of the voters in the new City of St. George and work to end the suit by Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome against St. George.

• He has a strong commitment to bring new industry to East Baton Rouge Parish, diversify our economy, create new jobs, and end the anti-business policies of this administration.

•Support for better public schools and school choice.

• Equal treatment for the inner city and North Baton Rouge to insure that all areas of the parish receive the same services.

The Endorsement Process

Jenkins said, “The 17-member East Baton Rouge Republican Parish Executive Committee, elected by the Republican voters of the parish earlier this year, submitted a list of 62 questions to the major Republican candidates covering most of the major issues which will face the next Mayor-President. We invited each of the candidates to address the Ronald Reagan Newsmaker Luncheon, and we interviewed each of the candidates one on one.  We are grateful for the cooperation and positive attitude of all three candidates and congratulate them on their previous service and their willingness to continue to serve.  However, based on his youth, ability to paint a clear, positive vision for the future, and his commitment to address the problems with proven conservative principles, we are pleased to recommend Jordan Piazza to the voters of the parish!  We will continue to provide more information between now and Nov. 3.”
