The Lafayette economy must continue to diversify into industries other than oil and gas, but at the same time we must ensure that the jobs we are bringing in are high paying, middle class jobs that our residents can fill. I will work hard to attract manufacturing, medical, and technology jobs.

In regards to roads, I will work in conjunction with our city and parish councils to develop an objective β€œworst to first” list for the city and the unincorporated areas of the parish that balances the condition of the roads and the amount of traffic on each respective road. After the lists are compiled, we will begin on the roads at the top of the list and work our way down.

Our electric, water, and wastewater utilities should always be under constant scrutiny to be delivered to our residents in the most efficient manner – both from a cost and services perspective. My administration will strive to find ways that we can obtain energy at the lowest cost, and then transfer this savings to the consumer. By doing so, businesses can reinvest in our community and homeowners can have more discretional income.

Infrastructure (of all types) needs to be built as efficiently as possible, with consideration of long-term maintenance obligations. Sustainability is a term that is used to describe the efficient use of resources over the long term. The way we achieve that is by understanding the life cycle and long-term maintenance obligations of infrastructure that we put in and ensures the most conservative use of our limited resources.
