John Fleming - Ronald Reagan Newsmaker Luncheon in Lafayette

LAFAYETTE — Newly-elected State Treasurer John Fleming, M.D., will discuss the workings of the State Treasury at the Ronald Reagan Newsmaker Luncheon at noon on Tuesday, February 27 at Dean-O’s Pizza, 305 Bertrand Drive, Lafayette. You are invited to come out and meet him.

The Reagan luncheon began in 2012 in Baton Rouge, and this is the first-ever Ronald Reagan Newsmaker Luncheon to be held in Lafayette Parish. It is also Dr. Fleming’s first public address in the Lafayette area since taking office.

Dr. John Fleming is a physician, entrepreneur, military veteran, and former Congressman from the 4th district of Louisiana. He served four terms in Congress from 2009- 2017. While in Congress, Fleming founded the House Freedom Caucus, along with Jim Jordan, Ron DeSantis, and Mark Meadows.

After leaving Congress, he was appointed to three different positions in the Trump administration. He served from 2017-2019 as Deputy Assistant Secretary at Health and Human Services. He was appointed and Senate-confirmed in 2019 as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development, and then he was detailed to the West Wing of the White House as Deputy Chief of Staff to President Trump in 2020.

Fleming grew up in a working-class home. His father died while he was still in high school, leaving him with no breadwinner in the home, two younger siblings, and a disabled mother. Despite such hardships, John worked through college and was accepted into medical school. After his residency in Family Medicine, Dr. Fleming served as a Naval Medical Officer. After leaving the military, he set up a medical practice in Minden where he lives today. In addition, he started several companies that operate commercial real estate and multi-unit franchise companies that continue to operate today.

He was elected State Treasurer in November with 65 percent of the vote statewide.

John and Cindy Fleming have been married for 44 years. They have four grown children and five grandchildren.

Michael Lunsford, president of Citizens for a New Louisiana will preside over the meeting, which will be broadcast live by Dr. John Fleming State Treasurer on Facebook. Lunch is payable to the restaurant and averages $12 to $20 depending on your entree. Reservations are not necessary.

The Ronald Reagan Newsmaker Luncheon is a project of the Louisiana Republican Assembly. For information, contact Michael Lunsford at 337-873-1221 or [email protected].
