Putting My Experience
John Schroder was elected Louisiana State Treasurer in 2017 and was re-elected in 2019 to a four-year term. As a businessman and entrepreneur, he believes government should manage its money like you manage your businesses and households. He wants to restore faith in the government by pushing for more transparency.
Treasurer John Schroder has saved the state of Louisiana millions of dollars already by renegotiating contracts and forcing departments to restructure their borrowing habits. The Treasury has returned over $668,000,000+ to Louisiana taxpayers thus far and counting. He will continue to push for the betterment of Louisiana and the lives of all those who inhabit it.
He has worked with the legislators to pass a law to prevent the Governor from sweeping the Unclaimed Property at the end of each year. In addition to that law, he established the remaining Unclaimed Property funds to be used as a trust fund. He is excited to have created a way to make money for the government without creating more taxes.
Treasurer Schroder is a U.S. Army Vet and served 10 years in the Louisiana House of Representatives. He is a graduate of East Jefferson High School and Southeastern Louisiana University. He has been married to his wife Ellie since 1985, is the father of two, and is an extremely proud grandfather.
