PEARL RIVER, LA. - Former Louisiana State Senator A.G. Crowe today vowed to dedicate $25,000 of his state salary if elected as Secretary of State this fall to a scholarship that will encourage students to think about the importance of voting.
“I will put the first $25,000 into a scholarship fund and work to raise up to $250,000 annually through private matching contributions in hopes of heightening awareness of the importance of voting for high school seniors who are eligible or about to become eligible to cast their first vote,” said Crowe.
“My 16 years in the legislature and more than 16 years in the records management and retention business uniquely prepares me to serve as your next Secretary of State. I will protect the integrity of the elections process, streamline business services and filings, and offer innovative solutions to protect the identity of all Louisianans with a specific detailed plan designed to reduce the cost of government. I have always regarded serving the public as a privilege, and I am eager to bring my fiscal conservative management style to the office.”
