SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The Council for A Better Louisiana is out with the responses of a survey by candidates for Louisiana Governor.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Republican Congressman Ralph Abraham were the only two candidates to respond to the survey.

The survey contained 17 questions on subjects including the candidates’ leadership style, the top outcomes they hope to achieve if elected, transportation infrastructure, education, workforce development, job growth, state fiscal policies, and criminal justice reform.

“What we hope from publishing these surveys is that voters will get some additional insights into how the candidates see themselves, what their own priorities are, and how they would deal with a number of major issues that have been in the forefront of discussion in Louisiana for many years. We think that’s the kind of information voters need and want,” Barry Erwin, CABL President.
