Tidmore Endorsed by Louisiana Weekly Newspaper, Firefighters, Teachers, PANO Presidents
The Louisiana Weekly had this to say, "Christopher Tidmore is one of the few Republicans who has worked across party and racial lines for the Recovery of New Orleans. He raised the spotlight on neighborhood recovery when the developers sought to rip down thriving areas like Broadmoor. He has consistently stood against ethical misconduct, highlighting time and time again, the sweatheart deals that so often corrupt our politics. As a journalist, he exposed corruption at the Orleans Levee Board pre-Katrina and in 2002 the hypocrisy of then-Congressman David Vitter's eleven month affair with a known prostitute named Wendy Cortez."
"Tidmore comes to office with a wealth of ideas that could help the whole area Metro Area. One of the most compelling is his plan to use the 20,000 restorable houses, purchased by the Road Home to incentivize the hiring & retention of Police Officers. Any Cop who agrees to work here for 7 years gets a FREE house and low interest loan to repair it. The same commitment would be made to the region's underpaid Firemen, First Responders, teachers, and nurses. It is new ideas like these that we need to help kick-start our recovery."
The Louisiana Weekly's endorsement joins Gambit Weekly, the Alliance for Good Government, the Jefferson Federation of Teachers, the Jefferson Parish Fire Fighters Association, three past Presidents of the Police Association of New Orleans (PANO), and CRIMEFIGHTERS--the state's largest victim's rights organization--in endorsing Christopher's candidacy for the legislature.
