The problems we face in our city – like crime, streets and drainage – continue to escalate because no one wants to take responsibility for addressing them. We must have elected officials with the independence to stand up and make tough decisions against the political status quo.

Old-school political machines are what I fought and won against to balance the budget and bring reform to New Orleans schools.   I will represent all the citizens in District B, not a political machine or a self-serving special interest group.  It takes a strong and independent voice to hold the mayor and  city departments accountable.  As your councilman, I will be that independent voice for District B.
