I am honored and humbled once again be chosen to represent the great people of my district, which includes parts of East Baton Rouge, Livingston, St. Helena and Tangipahoa Parishes. It continues to be a welcomed challenge and rewarding privilege to work for the people of my community and state.
This term, my priorities will continue to be to reducing spending, managing health care costs, and enforcing laws that keep us safe. I look forward to working with the leaders and citizens of my district to bring the needed infrastructure to our local communities and to invest in our future with quality education reforms and proper funding at all levels of education.

COVID-19 Economic Relief for Louisiana Small Businesses
The Louisiana Main Street Recovery Program is a $275 million grant program designed to reimburse eligible small businesses for expenses related to COVID-19. $40 million has been set aside in the first 60 days to ensure minority, women, and veteran-owned businesses receive the relief they need.
Some expenses the grant will reimburse include cleaning fees, costs to create social distancing, PPE, contactless equipment, some technology fees, signage, etc. Business interruption costs may also be reimbursable, including inventory replacement (spoiled food), increased labor costs (hiring delivery drivers), rent, payroll, and others.
