Jindal picks allies for jobs
Gov. Bobby Jindal has repeated the same mantra for four years: “Who you know is not more important than what you know.”
But who you know certainly seems to help in the job application vetting process for Jindal’s administration.
A recent flurry of hires and appointments in the last few months since Jindal was re-elected include former parish presidents and former lawmakers, many of whom were either term-limited or lost bids for re-election, all of whom were Jindal allies.
