September 2019 - Resetting Louisiana

On October 12, Louisiana voters will be choosing the Governor, the Attorney General, Secretary of State and all 144 members of the legislature. Also on the ballot will be openings on the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education which sets policies for nearly 720,000 public school students statewide.

Since the issues emphasized during an election tend to shape the priorities of those elected, this campaign season the Council for a Better Louisiana; Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana and the Committee of 100 have joined together to highlight ways to renew the state through their RESET initiative. This month, Louisiana Public Square explores the RESET agenda for improving state finances, education, transportation and public safety on “Resetting Louisiana” Thursday, September 26 at 8pm following LPB’s live Gubernatorial Debate. It will also repeat on Sunday, September 29 at 10 am on LPB.

The panelists are:

  • Camille Conaway, Louisiana Association of Business & Industry
  • Michael Olivier, Committee of 100 and RESET Louisiana
  • Erich Ponti, Louisiana Asphalt Pavement Association
  • Dr. Jim Richardson, LSU E.J. Ourso College of Business

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney, and Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana president, Robert Travis Scott, host.
