Text SHARON to 20406


From healthcare companies to technology companies, whether they are large corporations or family-owned businesses, everyone is struggling to find people who want to work.  Our workforce participation rate in Louisiana is one of the lowest in the country.  For Louisiana’s economy to thrive and for us to put Louisiana citizens to work in high paying jobs, we need to build the skilled workforce that our current and future employers need. 

Today’s students want more flexibility and innovation in their high school, community and technical college, and university offerings that are responsive to today’s quickly-evolving job market through dual-enrollment, apprenticeships, and industry-based certifications while in high school.  As Governor, I will continue to champion TOPS, TOPS Tech, and the Foster Promise Program because today’s students do not fit the one-size-fits-all model.  Let’s stop the brain-drain and give our students and young adults a reason to stay in Louisiana, with multiple pathways to success.

Senator Hewitt has:

  • Required the Louisiana Secretary of State to replace our aging voting machines (Digital Recording Equipment-DREs) with a paper-based voting system that will give us the ability to audit our election results and recount all of the votes cast in a disputed election. (Act 480 or 2021 RS.)
  • Established clear processes for the legislature, governor, and secretary of state to alter election processes during a declared state of emergency, with both the legislative branch and the executive branch providing checks and balances. (Act 286 of 2022 RS.)
  • Established the Closed Party Primary Task Force, which I chaired, to study the necessary steps to develop a closed party primary election system applicable at the federal, state, and local levels, beginning with the 2022 congressional elections. (SCR 55 of 2020 RS.)
  • Allowed disabled citizens to serve as poll watchers. (Act 178 of 2022 RS.)
  • Defeated numerous problematic election integrity bills as the Chairwoman of the Senate and Governmental Affairs Committee, such as universal vote by mail, ballot drop boxes, and voting by illegals and incarcerated citizens.
  • Supported strong election integrity legislation as Chairwoman of the Senate and Governmental Affairs Committee, such as the prohibition of “Zuckerbucks,” additional canvassing of our voter rolls, allowing military serving in Louisiana to work as poll watchers, and voter ID for absentee by mail ballots.
