What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
I am a small business owner and community volunteer across the entire region. I founded Ft Polk Progress in 2005 where we began pulling together a team across our region to coordinate the efforts of the local, regional, State and Federal officials to support and protect Ft Polk, one of our state's largest employers. In addition it is home to over 8,300 of our country's military heroes. This experience has given me the opportunity to build teams with our elected officials and produce results for the military and people of Louisiana. I have also served on the Central LA Economic Development Alliance where we work to attract, retain and promote new business in our state, as well as build a trained and ready workforce. This experience has allowed me to best understand barriers to success in economic growth in our state. As the Chairman of the $270mil Rapides Foundation, we managed our partial ownership of Rapides Regional Hospital as well as $10mil in annual community health grants.
