Baton Rouge, La. — May 17, 2021 — Today, Louisianans are joined in prayer over the loss of Former Governor Charles "Buddy" Roemer. Buddy was a dedicated public servant, committed to reforming our state for the better.
This loss will undoubtedly be felt throughout our state, from his hometown of Shreveport, to Baton Rouge, and every community shaped by his leadership.
Please join me in keeping Governor Roemer’s family, especially his wife Scarlett Olson, his children, his extended family, and his many friends lifted in your thoughts and prayers. As we navigate this loss, let us reflect on his service to Louisiana, and the great pride Governor Roemer showed for our state.
