You know how we feel about anyone attempting to ban pajama wearing in public. (If not, check out this blog post on the topic: A Message From Ellie In Response To Bans On Pajamas In Public) Yesterday, we learned how the other commissioners in the Louisiana parish where Commissioner Michael Williams proposed a ban felt about the topic.
On Tuesday Commissioner Williams attempted to bring his ordinance, which would place a ban on wearing pajamas in public, to the agenda. But, he was shot down by his fellow commissioners, who voted 8-4 against putting the ordinance on the agenda for the day.
Not only that, but one of the commissioners, Joyce Bowman, protested the ordinance by wearing her pajamas to the meeting.
She explained her objection to the ordinance to the ShreveportTimes.com.
“I can wear what I want to wear, when I want to wear, where I want to wear without the government interfering in my life telling me what I can and I can’t buy with my money,” Bowman said. “What they need to do, the sheriff and the police, is be catching these folks shooting all over the city. Go find those folks and leave people alone and let them wear what they want to wear.”
Joyce Bowman is now officially The Pajama Company’s favorite Louisiana commissioner.
