Bobby Who?

Not that one would know it from reading The [Lowell] Sun or The Boston Globe or listening to "City Life", but Bobby Jindal has effectively won four more years as Governor of Louisiana.  The process in Louisiana is to have an open Primary (this year this last Saturday) and if someone wins the majority of the votes that is it.  Governor Jindal won 65.8%

From The Bloomberg Business Week we have this:
He was elected on promises to change the state’s reputation as a nest for corruption.  Within months of taking office, he won approval for laws prohibiting public officials from holding state contracts and requiring them to disclose information about their personal finances.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune endorsed Jindal for re-election this month for those efforts as well as for his management of hurricanes, including Ida in 2009 and Lee in 2011, and the 2010 BP Plc oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Jindal has cut taxes and supported outsourcing government services to private companies.  Louisiana’s jobless rate of 7.2 percent ranks below the national average of 9.1 percent.
Bobby who?

Congratulations, Governor Jindal.

Regards  —  Cliff

Congratulations to the man who instigated the LA law that makes it illegal to pay cash for second-hand goods.

More like condolences to the rest of us.
