Create new jobs by prioritizing education, especially our universities and technical colleges, so companies will realize a highly qualified workforce. Creating more programs in technical colleges and universities based on ENTREPRENEURSHIP and helping support young entrepreneurs to create the jobs of tomorrow in today's Louisiana.
We must have the highest ethical standards for both the legislature and the Governor's office, standards that are not based in new bureaucracy but old morality.
Create new jobs by developing our oil and gas industry. If anything made this need obvious, it was the backwards, job-killing Obama moratorium inflicted on our state while we were already suffering from the BP oil spill. Developing our energy economy means both exploring the safest means of drilling while also creating the infrastructure that supports the emergence of new energy sources creating new jobs in Louisiana. Oil and gas companies should be given incentives to diversify so they can lead us into tomorrow's diverse energy economy.
Oil and gas may be the largest industry in Louisiana but the largest employing industry in Louisiana is the cultural industry. Just like the film sector has exploded in louisiana we need to further encourage the development of our food, language, dance, and culture.
