Well-known Louisiana congressman, Public Service Commission chair Clyde Holloway dies Sunday - The Advocate

Monday, November 28, 2016

RelatedThe state’s top utility regulator, Louisiana Public Service Commission Chairman Clyde Hollow…Mike Francis, of Lafayette, and Reldon Owens, of Alexandria, both Republicans, and Mary Werner, a Lake Charles Democrat, are vying to replace Holloway in the Nov. 8 election.Holloway was at the vanguard of the state’s shift to conservative Republicanism when elected to the U.S. Congress in 1986.“I became a Republican because of Barry Goldwater, and Ronald Reagan inspired me to run for Congress,” Holloway was fond of saying.“He was one of the forerunners of the Republican Party in Louisiana,” PSC Commissioner Eric Skrmetta said. “He was an exceptionally gifted man.”Skrmetta, a Metairie Republican, noted determining how much a government board can oversee the business decisions of private companies, which the PSC does, often leads to intense debate. But Holloway kept the inevitable passion from turning into personal feuds and attacks.“We were always honest in our disagreements. But we always understood where we could agree and worked from that point,” he said.Commissioner Foster Campbell, of Bossier Parish, agreed. “Clyde and I certainly had our differences, but I respected his devotion to his job and his family.”In the early 1980s, Holloway rose to prominence when he and others challenged a federal judge's order to close the public school in his hometown of Forest Hill. Holloway contended that a small community had a right to their own school. The efforts failed at the federal level.The public school, which was eventually reopened as elementary school, named its mascot, a bulldog, Clyde.A Lecompte native, Holloway owned and operated Holloway's Nursery, a business he started with his wife in the early 1970s.He was elected in 1986 to represent Louisiana’s 8th Congressional District. In Congress, Holloway focused on agricultural issues and was considered very conservative, pushing for prayer in public schools and against free trade policies. He was in Washington until 1993, when the district was disbanded and its constituency merged with other districts because of the state’s loss of population. (Louisiana now has only six instead of eight congressmen.)Holloway made five unsuccessful attempts to return to Congress as well as bids for governor and lieutenant governor.Before being elected to the PSC, Holloway was the Louisiana State Director of Rural Development for the U.S. Department of Agriculture under President George W. Bush.His PSC district includes much of central Louisiana and Acadiana, west of Lafayette Parish to the Texas border.Relatedimg alt="La. regulators vote to allow the sale of Cleco for $4.9 billion" class="img-responsive lazyload full" width="990" height="658" data-sizes="auto" data-srcset="http://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/theadvocate...
