WHY I'M RUNNING
The financial challenges Louisiana faces requires leadership from a commonsense conservative. District 12 needs a business-minded leader who understands that state government must work for its people, not the other way around. That’s why I'm running. As a small business owner, I'm the person for the job. I'm committed to reducing regulations on small business, holding the line on taxes, and improving our state for the generations to come.
