“I am the voice of the common man,” said Moon Griffon, a radio talk show host.
Griffon combined politics, personal experiences, his sense of humor, along with a heavy dose of common sense, during his talk.
“When I began my talk show,” he said, “my goal was to connect the state. I wanted north Louisiana to know what was going in in south Louisiana. I wanted to tell the people how and what our politicians were voting for.
“It was never about being a rough and tough guy beating up on people, it was about me representing the common guy when asking our elected officials questions.”
Griffon pointed out the importance of knowing the voting record of anyone who holds a public office.
“If you want to know who they are, just do a little research on how they voted on specific items. This will give you a clear view of who they really are.”
