Gov. Jindal: 'I don't live my life with regrets, I don't reflect, I leave that to others'


Gov. Bobby Jindal said Monday he doesn’t have many regrets looking back over his time in office. Jindal addressed the members of the Baton Rouge Press Club Monday and took questions about his legacy.

"Whatever I get to do and I'm looking forward to the next phase in life, this has to be the best job I've ever had and I think it'll be the best job I'll ever get to have," Jindal said, calling the chance to be governor, "an amazing privilege."

Jindal said his proud of many accomplishments but pointed two several key items including the reduction of state employees, privatizing the charity hospital situation and school choice for students state-wide.

"I'm not the kind of person who looks back," he said. "I don't live my life with regrets. I don't reflect, I leave that to others, it's not my job to do that. That'll be the job of others to look back and write and analyze and think about what these years have meant, but if I had to put it into one sentence I would say that I hope people remember this is a time where we went out and did tackle the big challenges."

Next week, Jindal’s family will host Gov. Elect John Bel Edwards' family at the mansion for a private, informal dinner to discuss life in the mansion.
