Message to Voters: 

Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to announce that I am running as a candidate for the Livingston Parish District 6 Council. As a District 6 resident since 2007, I am well-acquainted with the issues that directly affect our Parish. I’m reaching out to ask you for your support in this upcoming election.

As a 30-year retired Federal Government employee with the Department of Justice and the Environmental Protection Agency, I’ve dedicated my life to community service. Which is why I spearheaded a recycling services initiative in my neighborhood.

On the walk through my community, I undertook an effort to determine how many neighbors wanted a recycling program. And the results were clear: over 500 residents signed the petition I drafted. Due to the outpouring of support, I was recently featured on the WAFB Channel 9 news, the Advocate Newspaper and had the chance to present my proposals to the Livingston Parish Council. The lack of interest shown by the Parish Council in enacting this initiative, despite its overwhelming popularity, is what spurred me on to run for Council myself.

I am committed to the people of District 6, and I vow to do everything within my means for the good of all its residents. Because I am retired, I can focus all my attention solely on your needs and the needs of the municipality, something that seems insurmountable for other extremely busy candidates. I have spent the last decade living in Denham Springs. This is my home, which is why I am extraordinarily well-suited to find and fight for the solutions to local problems, because I live those problems everyday. Irrespective of race, creed or religion, if elected, your concerns will be my concerns, always.
