I would like to thank everyone for the tremendous support over the last four years and for RE-ELECTING me with 74% of the vote. I am truly honored to be your state representative, and I believe we have accomplished a lot together. I am also proud that we stuck to the principles which we laid down when we began. Those included:
- Everyone deserves to be included in the decisions that affect our lives and the lives of our families.
- Everyone deserves to know your state representative.
- Everyone deserves to feel comfortable expressing your ideas to that person at any time.
I will continue throughout my next term to visit with residents, property owners and businesses – and to listen.
As a community we have common concerns: the need for lower insurance premiums, eliminating crime, protecting our families, improving public education, and creating jobs and opportunities for ourselves and our children. We have worked together on these issues, and we will continue to do so.
We are a proud community and a proud state. There is no place my family and I would rather call home. I will continue to work tirelessly for you and with you to make you proud of your representative and to make our community and state a better place.
I am honored to receive these ENDORSEMENTS (updated 10-20-2011):
From The Times-Picayune:
“Mr. Abramson, a New Orleans lawyer, has done a fine job of representing his district his first term and deserves to be re-elected. Among other issues, he backed legislation to let neighbors shut down houses that are crime havens and secured the future of the John Hainkel Home and Rehabilitation Center. He is accessible to constituents and is well informed on myriad issues.”
From The Gambit:
“Four years ago, every legislative candidate promised to support ethics reform, but few have championed that cause as passionately and effectively as Neil Abramson. A measure of the integrity of his proposals is the fact that Gov. Bobby Jindal vetoed one that would have made the governor’s office too transparent for Jindal’s comfort. He fought hard to keep the John Hainkel Nursing Home open when Jindal sought to close it, and despite his freshman status, he already ranks among the House leadership as vice chair of the Judiciary Committee.”
I have now been endorsed by the Homebuilders Association of Greater New Orleans and the Young Democrats of Louisiana.
