Louisiana is home to some of the nation's richest natural resources and a tremendously skilled, hardworking, labor force. Yet our economy under-performs year after year. It's time to get Louisiana back on track. We need to make the state attractive to large and small businesses alike; we need to get to work now creating a more pro-business environment right here in Louisiana. We need to make sure that our existing businesses are supported and that new businesses have good reason to locate in Louisiana. Having served as President of the Bossier Chamber of Commerce, and as the 2011 Chair of the Greater Bossier Economic Development Foundation, I know how to do exactly that. I support lower taxes on businesses, offering and extending tax credits and incentives to help grow businesses and jobs in our state. And I will fight hard to eliminate the bureaucratic red tape and corruption that have become synonymous with doing business in Louisiana. We need advocates for our business owners and workers to achieve a smaller government, more accountability and better jobs!
