BATON ROUGE, LA – The Louisiana Motor Transport Association (LMTA) has proudly endorsed long-time board member Michael Reese for Louisiana Senate District 30. The unanimous decision was made at the Association's Winter Management Summit in Bossier City on February 13.
“We are thrilled to support Michael in his race for Senate District 30,” said LMTA Executive Director Chance McNeely. "Michael has long been a champion for his local community, our military, and the trucking industry. He understands the pivotal role that trucking plays in everyone's daily life."
"It is an honor to be supported by the LMTA, an organization of great people who are dedicated to improving the State of Louisiana," said Michael Reese. "I've been around trucks my entire life and I know how badly the insurance market is hurting our industry. I am eager to get in the State Senate to improve the business conditions of our State."
Reese, of American Moving & Storage, Inc., served as a member of the Board of Directors at LMTA for many years, where he became known for this thoughtful approach to complex policy issues facing the business community at-large and within the trucking industry.
"Our industry is proud to have Mike as one of our own, but his accomplishments span across many areas. We are especially proud of his work as President of Fort Polk Progress. He's proven that he is right for District 30 and the State of Louisiana in various different ways," said McNeely.
Michael, a Republican, has never held public office. He is running against term-limited Democrat State Representative James Armes. District 30 is an open seat being vacated by term-limited Republican Senator John Smith. Senate District 30 includes Vernon, Beauregard and Calcasieu parishes.
