NEW ORLEANS - Keva Landrum has earned the exclusive endorsement of the Orleans Parish Democratic Executive Committee (OPDEC), emerging as the Democratic front runner in the race for District Attorney. OPDEC serves as the official Democratic Party organization for Orleans Parish.
Landrum said, “OPDEC has a trusted role in representing the interests of New Orleans Democrats in local and national elections, and I am humbled to have earned its endorsement in my campaign to be District Attorney. I am also grateful for OPDEC’s confidence in my ability to bring equity, justice and accountability to the office while fighting for victims, protecting women against domestic violence and sexual assault, and giving a second chance to those who need it. ”
Landrum’s campaign to bring real reform and protecting public safety is connecting with voters and leaders who say that Landrum is the clear choice to serve as the next District Attorney of New Orleans.
Former Louisiana Democratic Party Chair Senator Karen Carter Peterson said, “It remains evident that Keva Landrum shares the fundamental values of our Democratic Party. Her leadership and experience are unmatched. She is the only candidate who has done the job before and who can deliver real reform.”
Louisiana State Representative Jason Hughes said, “Our community wants real change in our criminal justice system, and it is important that the next District Attorney has the experience and compassion to deliver on the promise of real reform. Keva Landrum is the clear choice to lead that change.”
New Orleans City Councilmember Kristin Gisleson Palmer said, “Keva Landrum has spent her entire career fighting for victims and being a selfless leader in our criminal justice system. She knows how to navigate this arena, understands what the challenges and opportunities are and has a plan to lead criminal justice reform in New Orleans.”
