We have to assess our tax structure and allocation tables. We must carefully assess the building of any new roads considering our inability to maintain what we have in place.

Lafayette Parish residents pay 4.17 mills on their property tax bill for "road & bridge improvement," which generates $9.5 million dollars annually. All property tax millages need to be scrutinized and revised to serve the basic needs of government in the wisest and most efficient way possible. Road and bridge maintenance is a vital government service, and citizens are demanding that Lafayette government focus more on road/bridge improvement. We must reduce property taxes (millages) that receive too much annual money, and increase property millages that are not receiving enough money, such as the LCG roads and bridges fund.

We have major infrastructure projects that are underfunded right now, like Louisiana Avenue extension, University Four Corners, and St. Antoine Extension. My goal first is to take care of the projects that are already in place by reallocating funds to those projects.

Our economy relies on a functioning, efficient transportation system to prosper and grow. I will develop a culture of trust among fellow council members so that we can equably distribute resources throughout the city.
