Good News: UDC David A. Clarke School of Law 2008 graduate and Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic Director Charles Jeane has accepted the position of Tax and Economic Policy Advisor to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Starting September 9, Charles will be working on tax and economic development issues for the State of Louisiana - and will be part of the inner circle of advisers to a man many consider to be a rising - and moderate - star within the Republican Party. Charles, who describes himself as a fiscal conservative but social liberal, believes he will fit in well at his new workplace.
Bad News: Charles, who has served us well as a Visiting Assistant Professor and as Director of our Low Income Taxpayer Clinic will be leaving us! : (
Good News: Another alum... a classmate of Charles' at UDC... will be stepping into his shoes. More on that as soon as it's official!
Meanwhile, congratulations and good luck to Charles!
