My Jefferson Parish Mailer
Throughout my 34 years of public service, you and I fought to protect our homestead exemption. Governor John Bel Edwards has been a loyal supporter of the exemption as a legislator and as governor including the frozen assessment for senior citizens.
When asked if he would commit to keeping the homestead exemption, Mr. Rispone said, “How am I going to do that?” He is being coy and being coy speaks volumes. Mr. Rispone’s position on the homestead exemption is clear. He does not support it. If he did, he would have said so. Mr. Rispone and his friends will work to eliminate the exemption. We cannot let this happen. We have fought too long to save our homestead exemption.
Please join me in voting for Governor John Bel Edwards, Saturday, November 19, and send a message that the homestead exemption is worth protecting. Thank you.
