Office Space: Bringing Back a Bit of the Bayou

Bill Clark/Roll Call
Rep. Jeff Landry shows off a chain saw for budget cutting in the lobby of his office in the Cannon House Office Building on Tuesday. The chain saw was signed by constituents at a town hall meeting and given to Landry.

“I think that’s one of the things that you see in this office is everything from back home,” he said. “The alligator, and I guess the chain saw — we use a lot of chain saws in Louisiana anyhow — but you know, the alligator, the crawfish festival, Tabasco, LSU. ... This is their office. You know, this isn’t my office. This belongs to the people of Louisiana’s 3rd Congressional district. ... I try to make it as part of Louisiana as we can.”
