As you probably know Mr. & Ms. Butler will leave Europe early enough to be with us.

In his felt Governor Treen's Was that he projected an an honest man and he that is an accurate real dedicated and a man. But he also ;Weak point is that he [now how to delegate adof having the time "le public officials, to d people at home, state and do the Ons:type work, that is his own. So he is in his office most of the time -- tied up. He is very slow in making decisions. Representative Diez thinks his lack of experience before he took office as governor was a hindrance to him in that he didn't knowthe budgetary process and that he really didn't have a feel for the finances of state government. Repre- sentative Diez felt that Governor Edwards' strong points are that he does know how to delegate author- ity, he does know the fiscal problems of the state. He had experience in state government, and as far as the fiscal and financial matters of the state, he knows everything about them. He believes governor Edwards is flamboyant and that he is what the people of Louisiana like and want. "He always took the time to see anyone that needed to see him." I was also curious to know what Diez thought of Diez, what were his plans and what did he see in the future of Louisiana. He gave me a straightforward answer. Representa- tive Diez believes that the economy is going to turn around within a year or a year and a half and when it does, our revenues will be back up. One of the big things he would like to do is to get a Vo-Tech school for the Ponchatoula and Springfield area. He has presented a bill twice since Gov. Treen has been in office and twice it has been vetoed. He would like to see this bill passed, not because of any selfish reasons, but because it is definitely needed! He said he does not have any plans to run for anything bigger than state representative, but he stressed that if the opportunity arises, he certainly wouldn't close any doors, they would all be ]eft open, l asked Representative Diez if he wanted to tell his constituents any- thing about himself or his plans.
