Welcome to my campaign website
Louisiana’s motto “Union, Justice,
and Confidence” is only a slogan, but it can be a reality.
With the support and encouragement of family and
friends, last January I decided to seek District 94’s seat to bring my
civic advocacy to the Louisiana House of Representatives.
If you believe,
as I do, that
New Orleans will be well served in the Louisiana legislature by
a new voice who is engaged full time in rebuilding the city, please
support my candidacy for State Representative from District 94.
abandon New Orleans.
Choices in statewide elections this fall
will define the city’s continued recovery.
The clear and honest chorus of civic voices
that has risen during the New Orleans recovery must
be heard in those chambers.
Community advocates lead the recovery, while certain elected officials
embarrass us on CNN.
Politics-as-usual is an obstacle to the New Orleans recovery that
together you and I can do something about.
District 94 needs a Representative who will:
Strengthen the middle
class in New Orleans
by confronting the problems in failing public schools and the absence of
adequate health services for adults and for children, and by targeting
locally-owned small businesses for additional special incentive
I will seek a national disaster relief
insurance program while working to establish state insurance standards
that protect policyholders over stockholders.
Clarify coordination with
the Army Corps of Engineers
and Louisiana Coastal Plan and Restoration Authority, with regular
communication that includes the small civic army of engineers and
geologists, neighborhood leadership, and the general public.
monitoring the Road Home Program to speed remaining 120,000 grants,
seek additional funding for elevation grants for those building higher,
and, additionally, address needs overlooked by the Road Home Program.
The Road Home Corporation and all
government/private entities must commit to developing properties in
accordance with months of planning created by the neighborhoods.
Louisiana’s leadership against climate change
by making our state government do its part.
We must begin by cleaning up damaged state
The state must use efficient energy
management in state buildings, in its fleet of vehicles, and in the Recovery
buildings in New Orleans.
In hopes of a greener, healthier future,
the state should encourage rebuilding in accordance with recognized
local green building initiatives, including adding geothermal
initiatives to solar.
Stabilize the historic
New Orleans Lakefront
in a long range framework that protects it as a permanent public green
space, and support City Park’s Master Plan 2018 and the Lafitte Corridor
which, when viewed together, promise to nurture the district as a
premiere recreational destination.
The real work of
recovery is being accomplished by citizen-led initiatives. People of
passion and conviction fight every day to support their families and to
rebuild their homes and businesses.
