la 2011 democratic gubernatorial candidate tara hollis begins july 'listening tour'


Meeting with Governors, Legislators, Public Affairs, Business and Civic Leaders.

(Baton Rouge) Mrs. Tara Hollis, candidate for Governor is embarking on a statewide 'listening tour' during the month of July.

In addition to her pending meeting with Governor Jindal, Mrs. Hollis hopes to meet with all of Louisiana's living former Governors (Blanco, Edwards, Foster & Roemer). She also plans to sit down with the major public affairs organizations in the state, including PAR, LABI, and Blueprint Louisiana, among others. Mrs. Hollis is also meeting with key legislators, and leaders on coastal issues, healthcare and education.

"I supported Bobby Jindal in 2007, was in favor of his agenda, and saw how much quality thinking is out there about the future of our State. It is pretty clear that his reform agenda has been abandoned due to his national ambitions" said Mrs. Hollis. "I want to sit down with the best minds in our State, and listen to their thoughts about how we can all work together to get Louisiana back on track" she said.

Her tour began in Baton Rouge on July 7th, with meetings with key legislators of both parties who are unhappy with the Jindal administration's way of doing business.

"Since I announced my campaign, I have been taken aback by all of the input I am getting about the mess that Governor Jindal has made. There is too much secrecy, and too many questionable things going on that can negatively affect people's lives" she continued. "Louisiana needs a full-time Governor who actually cares about the future of our State" she concluded.
