As a former teacher with over 25 years of experience in the classroom, I know that a strong workforce starts with providing a high quality education to every student in Louisiana. This means fully funding our schools, supporting our teachers by paying them what they deserve, giving them more autonomy in the classroom and stopping our over-reliance on standardized testing.
Louisiana is facing a massive infrastructure backlog- over a quarter of our roads are in poor condition, nearly 1800 bridges have been deemed structurally deficient, and we are facing $10 billion in drinking water and wastewater infrastructure upgrades in the next 2 decades. We can’t continue to grow our state when so many infrastructure needs are going unmet. In order to remain competitive, we need to make significant investments in our roads, bridges, water systems, and telecommunications infrastructure.
Promoting Economic Opportunity
Our state can’t reach its full potential when so many families are struggling just to make ends meet. We can create an era of opportunity in Louisiana by raising the minimum wage, ensuring equal pay for equal work, and reforming our tax system so that it prioritizes families and workers, not corporations and special interests.
