“We must elect accountable leaders of integrity with a proven record of steadiness, levelheadedness and decisiveness.”
Dear District D Friends,
I pray this note finds you and your loved ones in good health. As you know, over the course of 2020 we have seen crises of immeasurable dimensions befall our great state and nation—medically, socially, and politically. For many, the future is uncertain, unsettling and uninviting. I get that.
This month and next, we are in the midst of an election cycle for various civic offices. I concede that this perhaps ranks low on your list of priorities amidst the greater challenges of a devastating pandemic, food and employment insecurity and the rightful call for reforms in our institutions of law and order. However, it is in these periods of crisis that we must elect accountable leaders of integrity with a proven record of steadiness, levelheadedness and decisiveness.
With that in mind, I am running for one of the 14 available seats on the Orleans Parish Democratic Executive Committee (OPDEC) for District D. I bring nearly a quarter-century of senior managerial excellence with public sector involvement highlights, including:
- Lieutenant Colonel (Retired): United States Marine Corps (23 Years on Active Duty as an Intelligence Officer and Combat Veteran)
- Speechwriter to the Commandant of the Marine Corps
- Defense Policy Aide to U.S. Senator Claire C. McCaskill (D-MO)
- Chief Operating Officer: New Orleans Military and Maritime Academy
- Adjunct Faculty Member: Tulane University School of Professional Advancement
- Board Member: Gentilly Terrace and Gardens Improvement Association
- President’s Advisory Council: Jesuit High School
My goal as a member of OPDEC is threefold:
- Foster new ideas and inclusive leadership within the party,
- Promote candidates who represent the face of the community
- Advocate for common-sense policy both in New Orleans and Baton Rouge
I humbly ask that you consider me for your vote. Early voting continues through Independence Day with the general election on July 11th. My ballot number is 309.
