On The Issues

“All things are possible to him that believeth” Mark 9:23 #shreveportstrong

Every child deserves the opportunity to experience a quality education that meets their unique
needs, and our educators should be prioritized to ensure that better opportunities are created for
each child.

From access to availability of healthcare, medication, and life-saving treatments, our citizens need overall healthy equity that meets their individual needs.

Creating and sustaining diverse, comparable wage jobs for citizens as well as supporting our small
businesses, are critical components to a successful economy and an improved quality of life. Our
rural communities deserve revitalization, superior infrastructure and the opportunity to elevate.

Homeownership and You. Our founding fathers linked the notion of property ownership to
security, a stake in the ground, and general happiness. The same applies today as homeownership
remains the cornerstone of the American Dream – providing families with a sense of emotional
and financial stability and, historically, boosting household wealth through equity and
appreciation overtime.

Homeownership and Your Community. Homeownership plays a vital role in helping to build
strong, stable communities. In addition to it bolstering your community's treasury through taxes,
research shows the many social benefits it provides, including increased volunteerism, improved
health, and less crime.

Creating better opportunities to engage our young people, especially those involved in, or targeted by, the
juvenile justice system will help prevent the school to prison pipeline and reduce violence in our streets.
Our children long for empowerment to determine, reach, and excel in their own personal vision of

"A Stronger Shreveport for your family and mine."
