Governor John Bel Edwards on the Superdome “keeping up with the Joneses”

Weekdays 7AM - 9AM

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards joined Jordy and T-Bob to talk about tomorrow’s Louisiana State Bond Commision’s vote on the financial plan to renovate the Mercedez-Benz Superdome.

Governor Edwards gave a lot of credit to Saints Owner Gayle Benson, who has done a tremendous job keeping the players and coaches invested in the team.

We live in a time where everyone is  “keeping up with the Joneses.” As a result, Governor Edwards laid out the plan for how they will keep the Superdome relevant. Furthermore, Governor Edwards is excited about the joint effort between the Saints organization, who is going to be putting up significant resources to make the upgrades happen, and the state.

“If we could just make upgrades to it periodically, we could keep it a competitive facility,” Governor Edwards said about some of the potential retrofitted upgrades.

Also, Governor Edwards discussed enlisting the help of Saints QB Drew Brees for a project. He will help in promoting Louisiana’s new program to certify veteran-owned businesses. Finally, Governor Edwards discussed how much fun he had participating in Brees’ QB Challenge.
