In life, we often pray for opportunity to come our way. Just as I have, I am certain that some of you have faced an opportunity that you didn’t take only to regret it later. This is an opportunity that the people of Louisiana cannot afford to miss.
It has been confirmed that whether BESE addresses the appointment of a superintendent of education, or continues to neglect their responsibility and duty as an elected body, John White will be summoned to face a Senate confirmation. This process will begin in the Senate Governmental Affairs committee. If five members of the committee vote “NO” on confirmation, it will go to the full senate with a recommendation to reject. If five members do not vote “NO,” it could go to the full senate with no recommendation, or a recommendation to confirm.
Once the appointment goes to the full senate for a vote, 20 senators will have to vote “NO” to reject the confirmation. This is your opportunity to make your voices heard.
Please contact your senator via phone or email. Ask them to vote against confirmation of John White as superintendent of education should he come to the full senate for a vote.
This will happen very fast. Do not waste any time.
