Louisiana is at a crossroads. Change can’t wait.
Louisiana isn’t working. Literally. Last year, Louisiana was one of only four states to lose jobs, while the national economy grew.
Louisiana has plummeted to the bottom of the national rankings for household income and economic growth and as of June has the WORST economy in the country.
What’s standing in our way? The budget process. In 2018, only 11% of Louisiana’s budget was up for review. It’s impossible for us to fix our biggest problems when 89% of the state’s budget is dedicated to non-reviewed government spending and special interests.
Louisiana needs to fix the budget process and stop our elected officials from wasting more taxpayer dollars on temporary fixes. We need a permanent budget process that lends itself to creating jobs and opportunity in Louisiana. We need to balance the budget and provide for necessary programs that keep our schools and roads in working order.
But unless something changes soon, we cannot achieve these goals. Only true comprehensive budget reform will put us on a new path and bring jobs and opportunity back to Louisiana.

I want to support leaders who will fix Louisiana’s corrupt budget process. I stand behind common sense solutions that won’t let the status quo stand in our way. Louisiana’s future can’t wait. I support bringing jobs and opportunity back to our state. Add me to the list of concerned Louisiana citizens.
