Louisiana Lawyer To Explore Possibility Of Running For Attorney General
(KPEL) -- Burton Paul Guidry says he's looking into a possible 2015 run for Louisiana Attorney General, announcing the formation of an exploratory committee.
Guidry has served as an Assistant Attorney General, leading a number of national and international cases. During his tenure as an Assistant District Attorney, Guidry was involved in legal issues regarding coastal restoration, ground water, public access to water, and other rights affecting waterways. He also served on the federal and state task force to restore the legal system after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
He's also represented the state in Washington, D.C. before the U.S. Trade Commission on behalf of the fishing industry, and he appeared before the U.S. Congress as one of the lead counsels on levee issues litigation.
"We should choose Louisiana’s lawyer not by political party or affiliation," Guidry says, "but by experience, strategic acumen, intelligent articulation and personal and professional fortitude. We do not need an entertainer or a politician, but a full time legal workhorse in the job."
