My name is Kathy Edmonston, and I am running for re-election in House District 88 here in Louisiana. I am a mom of four grown children, as well as a proud grandmother. I have lived in Ascension Parish for 40 years now, and I graduated from LSU with my bachelor’s in English. I am a retired family resource facilitator for our Ascension Parish schools. During my 22 years in our education system, I had the privilege of working in all 28 schools in Ascension parish. I also served as a board member on the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE). I am an honest, passionate, and hard-working true conservative, as I believe my record in the House shows.
As a mom, grandmother, and children’s advocate, I am particularly passionate about areas of policy that impact the children of Louisiana. I believe we need to end the Woke Agenda that has hijacked our public education system. We need to pass school choice, so parents have the ability to make the decision that is best for their own children. We must protect the unborn. The unborn are our most defenseless and it is our responsibility to speak up for them.
We must stand up for the medical freedom of not only our children, but all Louisianans. The pandemic provided an excuse for the government to attempt to dictate what medical decisions we make for ourselves and our children. We cannot allow these unconstitutional mandates to continue.
I am a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment. I will continue our work to pass Constitutional Carry so all Louisianas can defend themselves without the overreaching governmental process. I am also an avid oil and gas advocate. We should be utilizing our natural resources, not sacrificing American jobs and becoming dependent on other nations for our fuel sources. Energizing our oil & gas industry is good for Louisiana and our nation.
I have been fighting the good fight in the State House since 2020, and I do not plan on stopping any time soon. It would be an honor to continue to represent District 88 in the fight for freedom.
