BATON ROUGE, LA – EASTPAC, a political action committee of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI), today announced their endorsement of Edith Carlin for State Senate District 13.

“We encourage the business community to support Edith in her election this fall,” Bo Staples, Executive Director of EASTPAC said. “This is a critical election cycle for Louisiana, and the business community must support candidates who will work to better the business climate in the state. Edith has a unique set of skills that would serve the people of Louisiana well in the legislature, and we’re excited to support her candidacy.”
Edith Carlin has made Livingston Parish her home for over 30 years.
