UL professor up for state economics job


Gary Wagner is originally from Ohio and moved to the Hub City to teach economics at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

Wagner previously worked at the Federal Reserve Bank in Cleveland. That  experience has helped prepare him for a new opportunity with the state. 

“This is a statewide position you would be setting the states budget,” Wagner said.

This job comes with no compensation, because it is a public service position. If Wagner does get this position, he feels it will bring some prestige to UL.

“UL would have someone in a position to give expertise to the state,” the educator said.
