In a statement, Perkins writes:
On behalf of FRC Action, the legislative affiliate of the Family Research Council, I am pleased to endorse you in your race for the 51st District of the Louisiana House of Representatives. From interacting with you, evaluating the issues that matter to you, and researching your positions, I believe you will be a strong champion for the core values of our country; faith, family, and freedom.
As a resident of Louisiana, this race is of particular interest to me. Louisiana is looking for elected leaders who will unashamedly stand for truth and will challenge the misguided notion that government knows best. We need strong leaders who will fight for the timeless values that have proven to be beneficial to all of our citizens.
We at FRC Action are confident that you will be a strong advocate for limited government, for individual liberties and for traditional family values. Once again, we are pleased to offer our endorsement and will urge those who care about the future of the family and constitutional government to support you as well.
“The work of FRC Action is dear to me and to my family. I appreciate Tony Perkins’ support in this election. Supporting the right to life, healthy marriages and individual liberties are all issues near to my heart,” says Beryl Amedee.
The election is October 24th.

“Our endorsement is based upon due consideration of Ms. Amedee’s interest in making our state less litigious, and creating a fair civil justice system for Louisiana’s job creators,” notes Boysie Bollinger, chaiman of the the Louisiana Lawsuit Fairness PAC.

LABI SOUTHPAC Endorses Beryl Amedee for House District 51
“Since its formation more than 25 years ago, SOUTHPAC has helped to elect state and local candidates who support job growth policies and economic development in Louisiana, “ Steve Stumpf, chair of SOUTHPAC, said. “Beryl Amedee has proven herself as a leader during her time of public service on the Terrebonne Parish Council.”
As a council member for District 4 of Terrebonne Parish, Amedee represents the Schriever, Gray, Coteau and Bayou Blue areas of parish. In her time on the council, she served as the 2013 chair, chair of the council’s Subdivision Regulations Review Committee, and as a member of the CSBG Committee and of the Downtown Attractions/Beautification Committee. Before being elected to the council, Amedee served four years as a member of the Houma-Terrebonne Regional Planning and Zoning Commission.
“I believe that Louisiana cannot spend its way out of its economic woes. Our state needs a conservative fiscal policy that cuts waste and encourages thrift in government, while rewarding risk and entrepreneurism,” Amedee said “We need a smarter tax system for the private sector so that we can emerge from this recession with an unlimited growth mentality. I will work to reform the tax code while cutting duplicative government programs, and most certainly, I will not support the expansion of more government.”
“We encourage the citizens of House District 51 to rally around Beryl Amedee and support her election bid, “Brian Landry, executive director of SOUTHPAC, said. “This fall election is critical and we must continue to support pro-growth leaders like Beryl Amedee.”
Amedee will face incumbent Joe Harrison on Oct. 24.
SOUTHPAC is a non-partisan political action committee working to recruit and support candidates who support the free enterprise market with as little government interference as possible.
