I previously started a program within an assisted living home, the Intergenerational Arts Initiative, which employed artists to teach workshops to children in our community and residents of the assisted living home together. I am looking to expand this program to recreation centers throughout Lafayette. Empowering the elderly within this community to find value within themselves and allowing them to engage with children in a teaching and play-based atmosphere will bring value to the citizens as a whole.

There are numerous recreation programs currently available to all citizens in Lafayette Parish through the Lafayette Parks & Recreation Department. If the Lafayette City Council were to closely examine the dozens of programs available to kids and seniors, then we could determine which programs are popular, and which programs could be altered to meet popular demand. I will be a representative for my constituents in City District #1. Your question assumes that "I have all the answers." I will listen to my constituents, as any good representative would, and will strive to meet their needs and desires. My constituents have the answer to your question.

Our parks and rec right now have not have had any major renovations, and I believe as a city we need to reinvest back into parks and rec to secure the future of our youth. Which will eventually combat crime.

Community centers are being under funded, and they should not only serve as places to just play, but also provide services and education opportunities. I will fight for increased funding to accomplish this goal.
