The second post in the Candidate Interview Series of the Shreveport-Bossier Tea Party, this interview features Lt. Governor Candidate Sammy Kershaw. The interview was conducted in Shreveport, Louisiana with SBTP Coordinating Team Members Evodna Springer and Matt Sciba. Also present was Kershaw campaign staffer, Amy Jones.
My opinion: In addition to serving on various boards and commissions, the Lieutenant Governor also serves as Commissioner of the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism. This has been the primary emphasis of the office in recent years.
Sammy Kershaw is uniquely fitted to serve in this capacity.
He has also stated that if the Governor left office for any reason and he had to assume the governorship, he would call a special election to fill the position, and that he would not be a candidate for the office.
Read the complete interview at Vote the Record, it’s interesting and informative.
