Hometown Chamber of Commerce supports new Speaker
October 25, 2023
BOSSIER CITY — The Bossier Chamber of Commerce offers congratulations to the new Speaker of the House, our own Congressman Mike Johnson (R-Louisiana) of District 4.
As the hometown chamber of the newly elected speaker, the Bossier Chamber is proud of Speaker Johnson’s part in history, as the first Speaker of the House from the state of Louisiana. “Having our very own Congressman be elected as Speaker of the House of the United States House of Representatives is an important day for Bossier, Northwest Louisiana and our state,” said Lisa Johnson, President/CEO of the Bossier Chamber of Commerce. “We know Speaker Johnson to be a man of great faith, knowledge and integrity who has always listened to his constituents’ concerns and requests. We take many issues to Washington, D.C. each year on our advocacy trips and he is always working to advance Northwest Louisiana. “The Speaker has been a great champion of our largest employer - Barksdale Air Force Base - and has been a great friend to our military community. We are proud to see a resident of Bossier Parish achieve such a high honor. We know this job will bring great demands but we are confident our Congressman is up for the challenge.” In addition to the Chamber’s good working relationship with the Speaker and his staff, his children have also participated in our Bossier Youth Leadership program and daughter, Abby Johnson, has served as an intern at the Bossier Chamber during summer break.
