My priority, as your next State Senator, will be to be a leader that promotes a business environment that grows our economy and generates jobs while creating a regulatory environment that allows our industries to thrive. Protecting what is most important to us will drive every decision I make and you can count on me to be a strong voice in Baton Rouge for who we are and what matters most to our families.
