Donaldsonville Mayor Leroy Sullivan sat with U.S. Senate Candidate Mary Landrieu on her visit to Donaldsonville and the Grapevine last week.

U.S. Senate Candidate Mary Landrieu stopped in Donaldsonville Thursday afternoon for a greeting to the historic city and lunch with at the infamous Grapevine Café. Landrieu was greeted with open arms by Donaldsonville Mayor Leroy Sullivan, Sr., city councilmen, Gonzales City Councilman Kenneth Matassa, parish councilman Oliver Joseph, and State Senator Troy Brown and State Representative Ed Price.

Landrieu didn’t say much about her platform, rather asked what was on the minds of those who surrounded her. Before leaving, Donaldsonville primitive folk artist Alvin Batiste presented a personal art piece to Landrieu, which she says will definitely be displayed in Washington, D.C.

*Editor’s note: Politicians in attendance were not there to endorse Mary Landrieu as a Senate Candidate.
