Brett Geymann is currently serving as State Representative for District 35. He was first elected in 2004 and won the next two terms unopposed. He will complete his final term in 2016 when he will be term limited. He currently serves on the Appropriation and Joint Budget committees and is also a founding member of the Budget Reform Coalition.
Rep. Geymann opposes the Common Core State Standards for many reasons but some of the most important are the loss of control at the level closest to the student and a national curriculum through national testing that does not represent the differences in culture and character among the different states and regions. He has drafted legislation to place control back on the state and local level along with several bills that will allow Louisiana to "opt out" of the implementation of Common Core.
Rep. Geymann was elected to serve on the Republican State Central Committee 1996-2000 and elected to the Republican Parish Executive Committee as past chairman 1996-2000.
