Sen. JP Morrell

Jean Paul JPMorrell is a powerhouse in the Louisiana State Senate. He has had significant success in public service, especially in confronting topics such as crime, job creation, and education. He has also earned the reputation as the states champion for families, winning major battles to reform sexual assault and abuse legislation. But JP is not your typical politician. Known for his prolific tweeting, love of comic books, and stylish foot ware, JPs personality is front and center in his public persona. The Senator hosts #AskJP, a podcast where he answers questions posed by constituents via social media. And the hashtag #JPKicks aggregates the photos folks snap of JPs sneakers. JP even created the #kickscaucus, presenting sneakers to colleagues as tokens of appreciation.
