Kathleen Babineaux Blanco served as Louisiana’s first and only female governor from 2004 – 2008.  She prioritized economic development and state investment in public education.  After the extreme devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita she focused on getting sufficient resources from Washington DC to support the recovery of coastal Louisiana.   Her efforts paid off when the federal government invested over $29 billion rebuilding levees, public properties and for nearly 129,000 home restoration grants.

Governor Blanco’s early decision to rebuild the heavily damaged New Orleans Superdome made it possible for the city to retain the NFL Saints and the iconic landmark was restored to a highly functional facility. 

The Governor does consulting work, is writing a memoire and speaks nationally and internationally.  She has received multiple leadership and honorary academic awards.  She also served as Lt. Governor, Public Service Commissioner and in the Louisiana House of Representatives.
