Join Governor Buddy Roemer on Yowie tomorrow (January 20th) at 7PM EST.
Charles “Buddy” Elson Roemer III was born and raised outside Shreveport, Louisiana, a state with a long political tradition of radical reconstruction. At the age of 16, he graduated high school top in his class, earning a spot in the freshman class at Harvard College where he earned a BS in Economics and later an MBA in Finance at the Harvard Business School. After leaving Harvard, and a small stint at his father’s computer business, he began his political career with state-level campaigns. Roemer also became a delegate to the constitutional convention in his state where he helped write the Louisiana Constitution. Buddy then served four terms as U.S. Congressman (1981-1988) as a Conservative Democrat, often breaking ranks with his party. As Congressman, he never accepted special interest money, remaining free from the “special favors” expected of Congressmen by their corporate campaign contributors.
