State Treasurer John Kennedy had a biting joke for the Baton Rouge Rotary Club during his speech to the group on the state budget on Wednesday (July 8). "What's orange and sleeps six?" Kennedy asked of the Rotarians.
"A DOTD truck," Kennedy quipped. "Think about that when you're waiting on the bridge."
State Treasurer John Kennedy visited Natchitoches Rotary to discuss the legislative session.
