Join us on Thursday, November 8, at the magnificent Squire Creek Country Club for the FINAL event of the Hayride’s 2018 Truth And Consequences Tour, with a star-studded and important cast of speakers!
Doors will open at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour, then dinner and the program commences at 7 p.m.
Our speakers for the final Truth And Consequences Tour event in the North Louisiana woods (Squire Creek is in Choudrant, located between Ruston and West Monroe) will be three very consequential individuals to the present and future of Louisiana politics.
Daniel Erspamer, the president of the Pelican Institute For Public Policy, is a Truth And Consequences Tour veteran, having spoken at prior Hayride events in Metairie (2017) and Baton Rouge (this year). Daniel is busily rolling out Pelican’s Jobs And Opportunity Agenda, a blueprint for the 2019 legislative session and, perhaps, more importantly, the 2019 elections which must be transformative to our state’s political future.
State Representative Alan Seabaugh (R-Shreveport) has been the leading full-tilt conservative voice in the Louisiana House of Representatives for most of this decade and single-handedly stopped a half-million dollar tax increase with a controversial filibuster in the House this June. Alan’s speech at our Squire Creek dinner highlights not just the final event of our tour; he’s rumored to be on the verge of nomination to a federal judgeship in Alexandria soon and this could be the final political speech of his career.
And Kyle Ardoin, Louisiana’s Secretary of State, is becoming a leading conservative figure in his own right. Ardoin has quietly fought to protect the integrity of the state’s elections against attacks from the likes of George Soros and Eric Holder, served as the swing vote this August on the state Bond Commission to ban a pair of Wall Street banks – Citigroup and Bank of America – which had imposed discriminatory policies on gun owners, sellers and manufacturers from financing state debt, and is the likely Republican entry in the special election runoff for the job he now holds.
It’s a dynamic and substantive lineup of speakers, and the perfect finish to our 2018 statewide tour. Don’t miss it, and reserve your seat today!
