Jindal on tour

Gov. Bobby Jindal launched a statewide tour that will take him to all 64 parishes, his press office announced Monday.

His first stop is in Alexandria at Central Louisiana Technical Community College, where he will sign legislation to provide funding for projects at community and technical colleges across the state, according to his press office’s announcement.

The news release included few details but stated that the tour would include events that would highlight new economic development announcements, education achievements, transportation projects, coastal restoration projects, and legislation passed in the recent legislative session.

Kyle Plotkin, Jindal’s communications director, said individual stops will be added as events come up.

“I want to hear from Louisianians firsthand about issues that matter most to them. The people of Louisiana shouldn’t have to come to Baton Rouge to see their governor,” Jindal stated in the press release.
