"I come from proud a family that has been involved with public service for as long as I can remember. I want to work for you. We need to defend our rights, create more living wage jobs, improve our schools, and make sure government lives within its means."

Real Conservative Legislation
As a father, businessman, competitive shooter and outdoorsman, I believe deeply in our South Louisiana conservative way of life. I am a deep believer in tradition, values and the Constitution of the United States. In my mind, there is no greater concept than the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, and the right to bear arms.
But with our freedoms comes great responsibility to protect them and one another. As a legislator, I am dedicated to fighting for the inherited rights and freedoms of all people in my district and the State of Louisiana: no matter their race, religion, politics or beliefs.
As a husband of an educator, I am in tune to the challenges and successes of our educational system. I know the joy teachers have seeing the difference and success of child and I know the frustrations they face from institutional type controls of heavy handed requirements. I believe that teachers should be allowed the flexibility and responsibility to make decisions as to what is effective within their own classrooms. Teachers are trained professionals who receive yearly education to make the calls for their own students, whom they know best. I don't believe in limiting their effectiveness from broad based governmental regulation, sight unseen.
On December 15th, 1791, the Second Amendment (the right to bear arms) was ratified into the United States Constitution along with nine other articles. Since that day American citizens have had the right to possess firearms for the proper purpose of sport, collecting and defense of property and person.
As a professional pistol competitor and avid sportsman, you will have a hard time finding anyone more passionate about our gun rights than me in the Louisiana Capital. Its a charge I take very seriously and hold deep in my heart.
I believe in defending the Second Amendment and fighting to afford responsible law abiding citizens every possible right in regards to their safe use and possession of firearms.
Very simply - I belive that our Louisiana Government's spending should be less than our revenue. In our current time, we need economic common sense and fortitude. Our small businesses should not be burden with extra tax bills while battling a hazardous economy.
I believe in smaller, more responsible government. A government working in tandem with business and industry to provide jobs, revenue, a secure tax base and stability in our economy.
