In addition to her new social media accounts, First Lady Edwards has two new sections on the governor’s office website:

“I am excited to announce my official social media channels today,” said First Lady Edwards. “I’m looking forward to engaging with more Louisianans on a day-to-day basis. As a wife, mother and former school teacher there are many issues facing our families, children and communities that I care about, and I know others care about as well. I want to connect with people from across our state, share ideas, and show them what I am doing as their first lady. I believe that when we can come together, regardless of any differences we may have, great things can be accomplished for Louisiana.”
