UPDATE: Due to a number of concerns about conflicts from speakers and sponsors alike, we’ve decided to move the Hayride Truth And Consequences Tour stop in Shreveport from Jan. 18 to Feb. 22. We’ll have a stronger lineup of speakers on that date, with announcements coming later this week.
ORIGINAL: We’ve talked about it a little in recent weeks, but we’re kicking off our 2018 Truth And Consequences tour on Feb. 22 in Shreveport, at Savoie’s, The Catering Place, on East 70th Street.
Here are the details…
Shreveport, January 18, 2018
Savoie’s, The Catering Place
2441 E 70th St, Shreveport
6:00-7:00 p.m., cocktail hour (open bar)
7:00-9:00 p.m., dinner and program
Tickets are $80. Table sponsorships are available for $1000 each, which include eight tickets.
State Representative Alan Seabaugh
Rev. C.L. Bryant, host of The C.L. Bryant Show
Famed Louisiana political consultant Jason Hebert, of The Political Firm
Plus others to be announced later this week.
We’re looking forward to catching up with all of our readers in Northwest Louisiana next Thursday, and we’re excited about the lineup of speakers and the subjects to be discussed. Jan. 18 is one day before the deadline set by Gov. John Bel Edwards for the state legislature to come to an agreement over his tax demands, so obviously that subject will be on tap for discussion and Rep. Seabaugh will give us an update on where the state sits.
And C.L. Bryant, who’s been a friend to The Hayride since the site’s inception, will give an update on national political doings and how Louisiana’s current situation relates to that. Not to mention Jason Hebert, who runs and wins races for candidates across the South as well as here in Louisiana, is going to give us the inside story on how this fall’s election cycle is really shaping up here and elsewhere.
Not to mention Hayride publisher Scott McKay will be speaking on what Louisiana’s conservatives must do if we’re going to fix this place and lift it out of its current malaise. We’ll be telling the truth about where we are and suggesting the consequences we need.
It’s going to be a fun outing, and a good time will be had by all! Make sure to grab your tickets today – and if your company would like to sponsor a table, we still have several of them left!
If you’re not in Northwest Louisiana, be of good cheer – the 2018 Hayride Truth And Consequences Tour will be making a stop near you soon!
