I’m running for Mayor because I want my grandchildren to have the same opportunities I’ve had, while still residing in East Baton Rouge Parish, and if we continue on our current path, I don’t see that being a reality.
My unique experience as Chairman of the Capitol Region Legislative Delegation has prepared me to address the issues facing our city, through collaboration with elected officials from all different political stripes. This unique experience makes me exceptionally qualified for the role of Mayor-President
My two top priorities are public safety and creating a city-parish that is more inviting to private industry and future residents.
I will improve our department of drainage maintenance through extreme accountability, privatization if necessary. I will also ensure that the funds provided by federal grants and loans to combat flooding are used efficiently and effectively.
I will prioritize the projects in MoveEBR that actually do something to reduce gridlock in our city instead of projects that provide that best photo opportunity.
We have to turn East Baton Rouge a place where people want live. Industry is attracted to safe, affordable cities with excellent educations and opportunities for their families. Economic development should not just be a buzzword, it should be an approach that takes a holistic look at our city, because businesses are certainly doing so when they consider moving to Baton Rouge.
