Press Release - Announcement

" It's  All About Our Future!"

After 33 years of public service, I am proud to announce my candidacy for Mayor of the City of Carencro. I made my decision to run only after Mayor Glenn Brasseaux announced he would not seek re-election having served 20 years as Mayor and 24 years City Councilman.

 

As I enter my 6th year as Carencro City Manager following my three years as Fire Chief, working closely with Mayor Brasseaux and the City Council I am uniquely qualified to continue our work on over $65 million in infrastructure projects currently in progress.

 

As Mayor, I will work with the City Council within our conservative budget to continue improvements to drainage, roads, water, sewer, and public safety. Working together our commitment to your safety can already be seen in the construction of our third fire station necessary to maintain our excellent fire rating and the design for our new police station with a modern Emergency Operations Center.

 

What’s next? With growth comes the need for improved traffic management, public transportation, and affordable housing. Much needed improvements to the I-49 interchange at Hector Connoly / Veteran’s Dr. are underway but we’re already planning the next phase. We’re also working with L.U.S. Transit to expand their bus service throughout Carencro to supply a qualified workforce for businesses.

 

Quality of Life is most important to all of us! For me, it begins with working to maintain our small-town family atmosphere by improving walking, biking, and recreational opportunities. Let’s bring together public officials, residents, businesses, civic and spiritual leaders to share ideas. Along the way, I will enforce the removal of junked vehicles and the demolition of blighted properties to preserve property values. 

 

I pledge to run a lean campaign focused on Carencro's bright future but I need your support and I’m asking for your vote on November 8, 2022.

 

It’s all about our future!
