(56th Governor of Louisiana)
Birthday: September 16, 1966 (Virgo)
Born In: Amite, Louisiana, U.S.
Democrat John Bel Edwards is the 56th governor of Louisiana. After graduating from the United States Military Academy, he went on to serve his country for eight years as an airborne ranger in the U.S. Army. As an attorney and politician, John Bel has been an active civilian for his state and country. He assumed the office of governor in 2016 after winning the gubernatorial election of 2015 against Republican nominee David Vitter. John always knew that his chances of victory as a democrat was low and scarce so he requested the voters not to vote for a candidate on the basis of party but select the individual first, citing the example of ex- republican governor Bobby Jindal. At campaigns his life-story became an inspiration for many, and voters were impressed with the disciplined life John lived. He is not known to be one with great humor, and he doesn’t tell the best of jokes and has a more serious and “no-nonsense” demeanor. Many of the Louisiana folks believe that their state is presently in need of a governor who cracks less jokes and implements reforms for the betterment of its people. He is also revered for being a staunch catholic and is a Eucharistic minister, altar server and liturgical reader.
