NORTHPAC, one of the political action arms of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI), has endorsed Duke Lowrie for District 8 Representative.
The PAC, which represents business interests across North Louisiana, also sent a $2,500 contribution to Lowrie’s campaign.
LOGPAC, the political action committee for the Louisiana Oil & Gas Association, has also endorsed Lowrie. LOGPAC, in their endorsement letter, said that “the business climate is constantly changing and the oil & gas industry is a constant target for lawsuits, environmentalists and politicians looking to make a name for themselves and to bring down the industry. LOGPAC believes you have the ability and desire to stand up against those who wish to do harm and that you will provide support to our industry in your district, parish and state.” With the Haynesville Shale action, the oil and gas business is a major economic force in the area.
Bossier City Firefighters Association Local 1051 has also endorsed Lowrie, who himself is retired from the Bossier City Fire Department.
Both the LABI and the Oil & Gas Association endorsements are big deals. Apparently they looked at the field and decided to go with the person who is actually a businessman and not the lawyer who has tried hard to assume that mantle.
