Pierre was a person of two La. Home Democrats removed from management positions as part of the fallout of July’s failed veto legislative session. Rep. Chad Brown, a Democrat from Plaquemine, was also taken off as chair of the Household Insurance Committee.
Boudreaux unveiled the adhering to assertion previously currently:
“Leadership is an motion, not a position.”
Although I am let down, I am not stunned by the the latest decision to eliminate Rep. Pierre as the Chairman of the Residence Transportation Committee. Titles and positions are momentary and that is why we evaluate the success of our elected officers by their commitment to services.
I post to the people in Dwelling District 24 that Rep Pierre has and will go on to demonstrate the dedication to company that he has displayed since currently being elected in 2012. The very same leadership that permitted him to be picked by his friends to serve as the Chairman of the Acadiana Caucus from 2015-2017.
Senate District 24 encompasses quite a few Household Districts and I will operate collaboratively with Rep. Pierre to make sure that the constituents of Dwelling District 24 proceed to acquire and have entry to all state methods with or devoid of any titles or positions.
As Governor Edwards not long ago claimed, “You can’t just take politics out of politics.” This is not the very first time a committee chairperson has been replaced in the middle of a expression and it will not be the very last time this action is taken. We acknowledge the simple fact that the appointing authority (Speaker of the Household) is the remaining arbitrator on committee assignments. We admit remaining picked as a committee chairman is noteworthy, but additional importantly, exhibiting the commitment to support on behalf of the men and women you symbolize is honorable.

Later on in the afternoon, Pierre released the pursuing statement:
Though I am unhappy in the determination of currently being taken off as Chairman of the Home Transportation Committee, I am thankful for the opportunity to be in a position to provide Acadiana and our good condition of Louisiana. If it is a single thing I’ve uncovered all through my several years of serving in the legislature is that our infrastructure problems know no political boundaries. So whilst I may perhaps no longer maintain the title of Chairman, I will continue on to work with my legislative colleagues, regional and point out leaders, to enhance infrastructure in the course of Louisiana.
Dist. 44 Condition Rep. Vincent Pierre
