Statement by Roger F. Villere, Jr., Chairman, Republican Party of Louisiana:
I regret to inform you of the death of a great leader who helped transform Louisiana, former LAGOP Chairman Billy Nungesser.
Billy Nungesser served as Chairman of the Republican Party of Louisiana from 1988-1992. But he faithfully served our party and state for decades, playing a pivotal role in the election of Governor Dave Treen in 1979.
Billy was truly a giant among men, a Republican pioneer who fought for reform in Louisiana when it was unpopular to be a Republican. Im glad he lived to see the Republican Revolution of 2004, which would not have occurred without his selfless life of hard work for his fellow citizens.
We are all better people for having known Billy. We are saddened by his death. Our state is much better off because of his lifes work, which we now honor.
In this vein, I am declaring Tuesday, January 24, 2006 as an Official Day of Mourning and Remembrance in Honor of Billy Nungesser for all Louisiana Republicans. I ask Billys friends to honor his memory and thank God for the role he played in transforming Louisiana into a better state.
