Louisiana Gov. Jindal Appoints African American Dr. Albert Sams To Board Of Regents
Written by 

Louisiana Governor Bobby JIndal today announced the appointment of Dr. Albert D. Sam II to the Board of Regents.  Sams is African American.

The appointment comes after the resignation of Board of Regents member, Roland Toup.  It has been reported that Toups resigned because the Governor wanted an African American on the Regents.  Jindal has been criticized for not appointing blacks to the Board and for appointing all whites--all but one who have contribute to his election campaign.

According to the Louisiana Constitution of 1974, the board is comprised of 16 members, including one student member, two gubernatorial appointees from each congressional district, and one at-large gubernatorial appointment. All appointments are subject to senate confirmation.

Sams, is a surgeon with the Vascular Specialty Center and serves as Chief of Vascular Surgery at Baton Rouge General. Sam will be appointed to serve as a representative of the 6th Congressional District, in accordance with the requirements of the Louisiana Constitution.
