Louisiana Governor-Elect John Bel Edwards will be the keynote luncheon speaker at the Council for A Better Louisiana’s 53rd Annual Meeting and Luncheon to be held Wednesday, December 2ndat the L’Auberge Hotel Conference Center in Baton Rouge.


Coming on the heels of what many considered a surprising victory in the Louisiana governor’s race, the governor-elect will address the critical issues that affect the state, many of which were at the heart of this year’s elections.


“We are extremely excited to have this opportunity for Governor-Elect Edwards to address citizens in this forum just 11 days after the election,” said Barry Erwin, CABL President. “We know there is tremendous interest in what he has to say about his vision for the future of Louisiana.”


At 10:00 a.m., prior to the noon luncheon, a diverse panel of political observers will dissect this year’s governor’s race, analyze the challenges the new governor will encounter dealing with the budget and the Legislature, and look ahead to the 2016 election for U.S. Senate.
