Baton Rouge Business Report: Mike Strain for Commissioner of Ag & Forestry
By Rolfe McCollister
I think Bob Odom should have been gone long ago as the head of this office.
voters will make that change this time. Odom's challengers include Strain, a
representative who is a veterinarian and cattle rancher, and Councilman
Wayne Carter, a
businessman. I met with both and heard about their backgrounds and reasons
Since Carter is a Metro Council member, I have far more knowledge of his
that is not to his advantage. His actions and politics on the council have
been distasteful. I
can't ignore that when we are trying to get rid of Odom and his politics of
old. Strain has
been chairman of the rural caucus in the Legislature for two terms.
Strain and Carter are both Republicans (Carter switched parties this year),
Jim McCrery and Charles Boustany, as well as Sen. David Vitter, have all
Strain. Strain is also supported by the NRA and the Associated Builders &
Strain will get my vote.
