BATON ROUGE — SENATOR — AND CATTLE RANCHER — BETH MIZELL will talk about her first session in the Louisiana Legislature and some of her important legislative victories at 12 noon this Tuesday, May 24 at Café Américain, 7521 Jefferson Highway. The meeting is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of East Baton Rouge Parish. Sen. Mizell, the mother of two and grandmother of six, raises beef cattle on her 90-acre farm west of Franklinton. She is a widow who was married to her husband 42 years before he died of cancer. A native of Bogalusa, she has 31 years’ business experience, 14 years as owner of a pre-school called The Children’s Cottage and 17 years as a cattle rancher.
