True Blue Gala 2018
The 2018 True Blue Gala will be Friday, May 18th in Baton Rouge!
You won’t want to miss the biggest Democratic event of the year with folks from across Louisiana. This year we will be honoring our Louisiana legislative heroes and we are very excited to welcome keynote speaker, former governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe!
A lifelong entrepreneur McAuliffe has spent his life fighting to make economic opportunity a right, not a privilege. As governor of Virginia, the unemployment rate dropped to a 44 year low, while personal income rose over 12%. He visited dozens of countries to promote investment in Virginia – and it worked. His administration created hundreds of thousands of jobs and ushered in over $20 billion into their communities.
McAuliffe defended public schools and universities, resulting in a historic $1 billion investment in state education. He led the fight in women’s access to health care, ended veteran homelessness, and reformed the criminal justice system.
Under his direction, the Virginia economy boomed and families from every walk of life reaped the benefit. He focused on equality for all Virginians, enhancing quality of life, and building an economy that makes economic opportunity a right – all Democratic values. And the state of Virginia thrived because of it.
McAuliffe is truly a walking representative of what we’re fighting for, and we hope you will join us in welcoming him to Baton Rouge this May!
