I believe I can make a significant contribution to the 705. I am very involved throughout the community. If chosen to become a board member, I will bring a level- headed and practical approach to issues facing our members and Acadiana. I will be helpful as the board works toward developing new opportunities for our members. I believe I bring a common a sense approach to problem solving and I follow a set of values, which has helped me succeed in what ever I do. I will serve the members with dependability, integrity, and distinction. I am particularly interested in raising the profile and influence of community based organizations, many who have been working through the community on various projects. Because my service and dedication toward moving my community forward is second to none.
