Caddo commissioner continues push for public pajama ban

CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

The Caddo Parish Commissioner pushing for a ban on pajamas in public is not backing down.

Michael Williams' proposal hasn't even been introduced yet, but it stirred up a lot of controversy when he first confirmed his intentions in mid-January. It also prompted a pajama protest of sorts.

On Monday Williams announced to fellow commissioners his plans to introduce an ordinance, and to start a letter-writing campaign.

"I'm going to do a national letter writing campaign to major department stores, to Targets to Best Buys, to Wal-marts," said Williams outside of Government Plaza in downtown Shreveport.

Williams, a self-described conservative in the dress code area, told other commissioners in a fiery speech that there should be respect for law and order, and asked them "Are we going to do let this generation tell us what to do, or are we going to be leaders and lead this community?"

He says he is asking the public to write to their local lawmakers, as well as church, business and retail leaders expressing their stance on the wearing of pajamas in public.

Williams says he plans to formally introduce the proposed ordinance at the end of February.
