LETTER: For the kids?

Staff Writer
Gonzales Weekly Citizen

It’s for the kids. This seemed to be the battle cry of most of our elected officials when the issue of purchasing Lamar-Dixon came up.

Although 64 percent of the voters said they would not support the proposal put to the people, our elected officials purchased it anyway.

Now, parish government wants to sell liquor at this facility. In this environment we want for our kids?

It’s time for the people of Ascension to stand up for what is right. I urge you to call your councilman and parish president and express your opinion on the idea of selling liquor in a facility they pushed for the kids.
