Governor Jindal Issues Statement On The Passing Of Lindy Boggs

BATON ROUGE – Governor Bobby Jindal issued the following statement on the passing of Lindy Boggs.
Governor Jindal said, “As the first woman elected to Congress in Louisiana, and as the first female Chair of the Democratic National Convention, Lindy no doubt left her mark on history.
“She lived a life of service, carrying on for those who couldn't and speaking up for those who didn't have a voice in the halls of Congress. Lindy was a true fighter, but she did it with incredible grace and the people of Louisiana are grateful for her service.
“The thoughts and prayers of my family and of the people of Louisiana are with Lindy's family.”
