Former Governor Edwards Visits Alexandria Over the Weekend

Former Governor Edwin Edwards is a featured speaker over the weekend for a “Stop the Violence” program.

Edwards, now in his 80s, is having a second life after his release from federal prison. He has written one book and said he’s working on another. He’s married for the third time and even has a young son to add to his blended family.

We asked Edwards about the upcoming gubernatorial race and what we need in a governor.

Edwards was also celebrating his 88th birthday this weekend. Upon leaving Alexandria, he made one more stop in Opelousas.
