You can take Louisiana back from self-serving career politicians.

Politicians who  answer to donors, big business, and ignore ordinary citizens
Politicians who  make a mockery of term-limits and just swap offices and continue on their way

Why you must get involved taking Louisiana back from self-serving career politicians?

Politics Louisiana leads the nation in incentives to industries while forcing Citizens to pay higher taxes & infrastructure improvements for the future – career politicians will continue to put their financial donors & themselves first!
Education in the past 10 years 77,000 Louisiana college graduates have left the state – will this force your children & grandchildren to leave Louisiana to find a decent job?
Healthcare the quality & availability will continue to decrease as costs skyrocket, while uninsured Citizens continue to use Emergency Rooms as alternatives to health insurance
Environment rather than addressing environmental concerns as industry was forced to do by the EPA in St. John Parish, politicians will continue to hide information from the public as they take care of their corporate donors

You aren’t helpless and here’s what you can do

Look at the information below and you'll find a step-by-step process to take real action

2. Vote on October 12th – your Vote counts!

3. Reach out to at least 3 friends or family members & encourage them to vote
