Renee Lapeyrolerie, chief spokesperson for Orleans Parish Criminal Sheriff Marlin Gusman since Hurricane Katrina, says she has taken a position as political director for U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu’s campaign. “I will continue to work on projects at the Sheriff’s Office as a consultant,” Lapeyrolerie says. One such project apparently is promoting Gusman’s third annual Easter egg hunt from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday (March 15) at the Riverview (the “Fly”) behind Audubon Zoo. A veteran Democratic campaign consultant who worked as Louisiana press secretary for the Kerry/Edwards 2004 presidential campaign and the Gore/Lieberman presidential campaign in 2000, Lapeyrolerie also managed Dale Atkins’ campaign for District Attorney in 2002. Atkins’ decision not to run for DA in the fall freed Lapeyrolerie to sign on with Landrieu.
