TEA PARTY OF LOUISIANA ENDORSES VALARIE HODGES
FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 64
BATON ROUGE - The Tea Party of Louisiana has endorsed Valarie Hodges for State Representative for District 64 (Denham Springs, Watson, Central, Pride & Brownsfield). Valarie is currently a member of the executive committee of the Louisiana Republican Party.
"We are very excited to announce our endorsement of Valarie Hodges for State Representative," said Bob Reid, spokesman of the Tea Party of Louisiana. "Valarie has been with the tea party movement since its inception in 2009. She is a constitutional conservative and will be an exciting leader to watch in the state legislature," added Reid.
The Tea Party of Louisiana chose to endorse Valarie because she is a proponent of the tea party initiative to phase out the state's personal income tax. She is also an advocate for school choice - legislation that would give parents the right to choose what public school their children attended. Valarie Hodges is a proponent of smaller government, lower taxes and less regulation on business and industry.
"The Tea Party of Louisiana began working more than a year ago to make big gains in the state legislature during this upcoming election cycle," said Bob Reid. "As a conservative republican and tea party activist, Valarie Hodges has been a vital contributor to these efforts and we are excited that she will soon be taking a seat in our Louisiana House of Representatives," added Reid.
The election will be held on October 22. You can learn more about Valarie Hodges at www.valariehodges.com
