How will you use your position of influence to improve public education for children in our district?

I will work closely with the school board and its members in my district to make sure that we are putting education as a top priority for District 2. Education is so important today for our children. I respect all teachers and principals for what they do every day with our children. They are also role models and it’s important we give our school system the support that they need to do their job!

Since I am not running for a position on the school board, all I can say is that I would support ANY measure to continue to fund education to the fullest. We have several under-performing schools in Lafayette Parish, mostly in the poorer areas of the parish. I firmly believe that raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour would help to relieve those families suffering from poverty situations; thus affording those families more time to focus on their children's education instead of worrying how to pay for their next meal.
