Treasurer John M. Schroder
John Schroder was elected Louisiana State Treasurer in 2017 and was just re-elected 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 believes government should be more transparent and accountable, which would help to restore faith in government.
In his two years in office, the Treasury returned more unclaimed property checks than any other year on record, and saved the state millions of dollars by renegotiating contracts and forcing departments to restructure their borrowing habits.
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. Above all, he is a husband of 34 years, father of two and an extremely proud grandfather to two grandchildren.
