Q: Why are you running for the Webster Parish Police Jury?
A: I have lived in district 12 my entire life. I grew up hunting in these woods and fishing on Lake Bistineau. I love where I am from and I would love the opportunity to be involved in making decisions that will benefit our community.

Q: While campaigning, what is the biggest concern you have heard? Your biggest concern?
A: Since the beginning of my campaign, the concern that has been voiced to me the most is the condition of our roads. I agree with this concern, and I would also like to address many other issues, including our lack of jobs and the condition of our lake.

Q: Why do you think you are the best candidate?
A: Before I became self-employed, I worked for my brother at Moseley Construction. There, I gained general construction experience, such as building roads and driveways and clearing land. After becoming self-employed, I gained experience in the management of business, including fleets of trucks and heavy equipment. Throughout my career, I have become skilled at building business relationships and coordinating large projects. I feel that my various work experiences uniquely qualify me to represent the people of District 12.

Q: What do you want to see done in District 12?

A: In our district, our roads, lake and economy all have room for dramatic improvement.
