About as often as I’m asked, “How long until we’re rid of Bobby Jindal?” I’m also asked, “Who will lead Louisiana after he’s gone?”
Clearly, our people are eager — perhaps desperate — for true, visionary leadership by a governor who cares more about Louisiana than his presidential ambitions.
One organization looking to find and nurture the future leaders of Louisiana, and other states, is the New Leaders Council. This national organization headquartered — not in DC, but in La Jolla, California — is dedicated to “train[ing] and promot[ing] the progressive political entrepreneurs of tomorrow — trendsetters, elected officials and civically engaged leaders in business and industry who will shape the future landscape.”
According to NLC, it “recruits young men and women from outside traditional power structures and equips them with the skills necessary to be civic leaders in their communities and workplaces.”
The Louisiana NLC chapter has just announced its 2013 Fellows class. It’s an impressive group. Keep an eye on them. There may be a future governor among them.
