On June 2, 2016 the Louisiana Advocacy Committee held its fourth quarter meeting at the Baton Rouge office.
The group was introduced to Ashley Bridges, State Government Relations Director, as she reported on the organization’s state and local public policy agenda: Louisiana Medicaid expansion, healthy vending procurement in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, and Smoke-free East Baton Rouge. Katherine Bryant, Sr. Government Relations Director of Mississippi, also updated the committee on the tobacco tax effort. Julie Howell, Grassroots Director, led an elevator speech training for the committee members.
After questions and open dialogue on future campaign plans and committee membership, the present members were thanked for their service and received certificates of appreciation.
