Cajun Congress to caucus in Crowley
Crowley – The Cajun Congress will hold its second caucus on Mon day, Dec.7, at 6 p.m., at the location of The Ballroom in Crowley. This meeting is for interested participants to get together and discuss ideas and plans for the Southwest Louisiana area.
The Cajun Congress’s purpose is to band the people of Southwest Louisiana together to share ideas, to act cooperatively, and to gather information which we can then use to plan our own strategic maneuvers to bring to the attention of our elected agents and officials new formulas for economic and political success in government.

“Much like our ancestors, we have become governed by a federal government who exercises regulatory power on its people mostly due to its largesse in funding through the state government distribution, with very little input from those who ultimately are the folks who, on a daily basis, live, work and endure the consequences of federal government decision making. The idea behind the Cajun Congress is that the people should have greater input in the process than any particular political party,” said Burton Guidry, a veteran lawyer and the moving force behind the idea of the Cajun Congress.
