2021 March Election Cycle – LRTA Survey Results

Although LRTA does not endorse candidates for public office, the Association remains keenly interested in receiving support from elected officials on issues that are important to maintaining and improving the benefits needed to secure dignity and independence in retired life.

LRTA reached out to the candidates in Louisiana running for the Louisiana Legislature, BESE and U.S. Congress to gauge their thoughts and opinions on our Legislative Priorities. Candidates running for federal office received our Federal Survey, and candidates running for state office (including BESE) received our Legislative Survey.
