Policy And A Pint: The Education of Politics

Former Ouachita Parish Police Juror Charles Jackson says his time on the jury was an education.

"The idea you want government to be as efficient as possible, the deck is really stacked against that," said Jackson.  He shares that the steps local bodies have to go through are very hard, especially when trying to operate as a business.  

Jackson also points out the importance of local government's interaction with state representatives and senators as voters consider candidates in October's election.

Jackson lends his perspective of statewide races as a panelist in KEDM's Policy And A Pint Tuesday.  

An active member of several organizations in the area, Jackson is intrigued by the race for Lieutenant Governor.  "The lieutenant governor's one stated responsibility is culture and tourism.  I'd be very interested to see of the announced candidates, how they feel about that role," he said.
