Tom Schedler Addressing Pachyderms of GBR Tonight

By  | 

    Secretary of State, Tom Schedler, will address the Pachyderms of GBR meeting on Thursday, May 23rd  at 6:30 p.m. at the Great Wall Chinese Restaurant, 3084 College Drive, Baton Rouge, 70808. (6:30 to 7:00 – Socializing; 7:00 – Meeting)

    Schedler will focus on the Department of Justice’s suit against the State of Louisiana and a number of Louisiana state agencies and officials alleging that Louisiana’s governmental agencies were not registering the recipients of state benefits to vote with sufficient vigor.  Furthermore, the DOJ is demanding that the Secretary release the private, personal information of every registered voter in Louisiana.
    The DOJ’s lawsuit, essentially a copycat suit to one filed by Project Vote and the NAACP in New Orleans in May of 2011, is in spite of the fact that Louisiana is ranked fourth in the entire country in terms of voter registration with over 84% percent of the eligible electorate registered to vote.
    Cost for the buffet is $13.00, drink, tax, gratuity and ice cream included.  Pachyderm meetings are open to the public and guests are welcome.  Reservations are requested.  RSVP: 225-644-5728 or e-mail: info@pachydermsofgbr.org  For more information, visit the Pachyderms on Facebook at www.facebook.com/PachydermsofGBR
