Attorney Geri Broussard Baloney To Quality For AG In Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE – Attorney Geri Broussard Baloney, a resident of Garyville, LA, where she founded an all female, minority owned and operated law firm in the River Parishes region, will qualify for the Attorney General’s race today in Baton Rouge.

         “I am not a part of this state’s traditional political system, so I will have the ability to truly serve the people of Louisiana,” said Broussard Baloney. “That is why I will be unlike any Attorney General this state has ever seen.”

         Broussard Baloney said she has extensive experience in governmental affairs, complex litigation and contracts. She is an honor graduate of both Southern University at New Orleans, with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science, and Loyola University School of Law, graduating with Moot Court Honors upon receiving a Juris Doctorate and Certificate in International Law.

         Her government experience includes working as a legislative aide to the New Orleans City Council and as Administrator of the City’s Board of Zoning Adjustment.

         She is formerly a U.S. General Service Administration Contractor.

         Broussard Baloney has served as the first River Region’s March of Dimes Chair, and on several boards, commissions and transition teams,  including the Pontchartrain Levee Board, where she chaired the Legal and Legislative committee; the Garyville Timbermill Board of Directors; the River Parish YMCA Board of Directors; Governor Kathleen Blanco and Mayor Sidney Barthelemy’s transition team; the Bring Back New Orleans Commission’s Economic Development Committee; and the South African ANC Constitution Committee (Cape Town, South Africa) which was engaged in drafting the country’s new constitution after the fall of apartheid.

         She said her priority is giving Louisiana citizens the best legal representation possible, not using the Attorney General’s office for political favors and gain.

         “I am committed to changing the way this public office is operated,” Broussard Baloney said. “This office should have protected people’s access to affordable healthcare, not impeded it. This office should have represented the people’s interests in the Gulf Oil Disaster, not given away that responsibility to private law firms and political contributors. I’m coming from outside the system, but that is what it will take to make this office work for the people.”
