The Republican Party of Louisiana, today, announced its official endorsement of John Schroder for Louisiana State Treasurer.
“John Schroder is running a fantastic campaign highlighting his conservative fiscal principles,” Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere said. “The Republican Party of Louisiana and I encourage all conservatives in Louisiana to unite and vote for John Schroder in November.”
John Schroder has exhibited a dedication to public service throughout his life, serving as a special agent in the United States Army, and as a Louisiana narcotics agent. Representing his St. Tammany Parish based district in the State House of Representatives since 2007, John Schroder has been a fighter for our conservative values. Louisiana voters have recognized this selfless dedication and have selected John Schroder to be the Republican candidate in the runoff for State Treasurer.
A vocal opponent to increasing taxes on Louisiana taxpayers, John Schroder has led the charge against Governor John Bel Edwards’ liberal tax and spend policies. John Schroder has been one of several leaders to push for an overhaul of the entire tax system for Louisiana and a more streamlined budgeting process.
“Louisiana is at a crossroads when it comes to its spending habits,” said Villere. “We need someone that we can trust to oversee taxpayer money and shout from the rooftops when it’s being doled out in an irresponsible manner. John Schroder is the fiscal watchdog that we need overseeing Louisiana’s Treasury Department.”
“John Schroder’s record and actions are a clear indication of how well he will serve the people of Louisiana as State Treasurer,” said Chairman Villere. “Republicans in Louisiana recognize the importance of the office of State Treasurer; and we know John Schroder will lead the office with honesty, integrity, and conservative principles.”
“With voter turnout, this past weekend, at less than 14%, and with the New Orleans mayoral runoff on the same November ballot, it is imperative that Republicans show up to vote on November 18th,” said Chairman Villere. “We are less than 3 weeks away from the start of the early voting period, and this election is too important for Republicans to stay home and take for granted. Republicans must encourage their friends and family members to get out and vote.”
Early voting begins on November 3rd and ends November 11th.
