Lawmaker Who Fought To End Tolls On Crescent City Connection Stepping Down

Crescent City Connection Bridge.

State lawmaker Patrick Connick, who fought to save commuters money by eliminating tolls on the Crescent City Connection bridge, is stepping down from his post due to term limits.

Connick addressed his time in the House yesterday, saying the reason why he ran for office in the first place was because of the mismanagement of government funding projects. Six years ago, Connick led the push to eliminate tolls on the bridge which he showed were not properly used for improvements or maintenance.

Connick said he now plans to run for a state Senate seat held by John Alario who is also facing term limits.
