He may have been sworn in three weeks ago, but Governor John Bel Edwards remains on the campaign trail.
“Despite everything that we’ve heard from the ‘education reform governor’, he left office and our educational achievement levels were 49th,” Edwards said Tuesday evening.
Thus far this week, he has spoken to the Republican Legislative Caucus, Board of Regents stakeholders, and the American Sugar Cane League. Today he’s set to address the Louisiana Hospital Association and the construction trades convention. Edwards is pushing his plan for solving the state budget crisis, now seeking votes from lawmakers.
