How will you fund road maintenance and improvement and determine the most needed and impactful projects?
Candidate for Parish Council District 5
One of the major ways that governments get revenue is in a sales tax and property tax. That is how governments are run. Every day working Americans contribute to this budget. When elected, I will find ways to fund these projects by looking at some of the bonds we currently have to see if we can free up some of this money for our road projects. I also want to work with the Acadiana delegation and chief lobbyists on contracts to secure capital outlay money to fund parishwide capital outlay projects. We have to look at how we are rating our roads and make sure that the rating system is accurate and sufficient in determining if that's how we want to continue to determine what should be a priority.
