Why I’m Running

Louisiana has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. We are structurally broken.

When I began my first term as a state legislator eight years ago, I quickly recognized our state government had fundamental issues with our budget and spending practices. I have repeatedly pointed to these problems over the years to bring them to light.

The budget process is not rocket science. Every Louisiana taxpayer understands the concept that you cannot spend more money than you make. Government must understand you cannot spend more revenue than you take in, and you cannot use non-recurring revenue to pay for recurring expenses.

Louisiana taxpayers work hard for the money they earn, and the government owes it to the people to spend and invest it wisely. As your next state treasurer, I will do everything in my power to ensure this happens. I will always stand for the Louisiana taxpayer and that will not change when elected treasurer.
