FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Chief Justice Pascal F. Calogero, Jr, announced today that the Louisiana Supreme Court has appointed the 15 members who will sit on the newly established Judicial Campaign Oversight Committee. According to Chief Justice Calogero, "The purpose of the committee is to serve as a resource for judicial candidates, to assist in educating judges and attorneys running for judicial office about the Code of Judicial Conduct, and to help deter impermissible judicial campaign conduct."

The Committee is comprised of lawyers, retired judges, and citizens who are neither lawyers nor judges. The initial appointments of Committee members are for staggered terms; thereafter, members are appointed for four year terms of office.

The Judicial Campaign Oversight Committee members are: Father M. Jeffery Bayhi; Herbert A. Cade; Dr. Christopher Cenac; Barry Erwin; Dr. Norman Francis; Harry S. Hardin, III; Retired Judge Graydon K. Kitchens, Jr., Committee Chair; Margaret A. "Peggy" LeBlanc; Retired Justice Harry T. Lemmon; Lynn M. Luker; Dr. Romell J. Madison; John B. Scofield; Retired Judge Fred Sexton, Jr.; Retired Judge Melvin A. Shortess; and Christel C. Slaughter, Ph.D.
