Gov. Jindal makes PR swing in Lafayette today

by Jeremy Alford

It’s becoming increasingly safe to say that Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal is the most-traveled governor in recent years, at least inside state lines. He hit the road and visited Louisiana's major metro areas during the campaign, after being elected, and before and after his special session on ethics. Now, with a successful second special session in the can, Jindal’s hitting the asphalt again to tout his administration’s accomplishments from the gathering that convened last week.

He’ll be in Lafayette today at 1:15 p.m. at Lafayette’s Restaurant, in the Bayou Room, at 1025 Kaliste Saloom Road. Jindal is expected to highlight his victories from the recent special session where lawmakers spent the state’s $1.1 billion surplus according to an agenda crafted by his administration.
