Drug concerns rise to the top of citizens' priorities...

3/26/14

I have begun my second round, knocking on doors that were closed the first time around, and still having great feedback, input, and support.  Having never run for an elected position before, all is new, and all is unpredictable.  We went into this venture on our own, no financial supporters, and with no big pool of volunteers.  Running on a shoestring, tapping into the marketing and design talents of Ginger, the vision and message from me, and some physical assistance of my son, we use our own talents and skills, and combine that with prayer and guidance from God.  Whatever the end result, I have no regrets and no obligations to anyone.  There is something to be said of going it alone.  No one speaks for me, and no one controls the agenda.  I can sleep at night.

The neighborhoods I have been in lately have an overwhelming concern about drugs.  They see deals going down, and they are tired of what they perceive is a total lack of response.  If I am elected, this will become a priority and I will do what is necessary to decrease and rid Arnaudville of this growing problem.  Studies have been done regarding the drug and alcohol epidemic within rural America.  Small towns are seeing a rise in drug and alcohol abuse, with younger and younger children participating.  Where there is an education gap, illiteracy, high unemployment, and poverty, substance abuse is a problem.

With neighborhood watches, we can work together, and I hope we have that opportunity after April 5.
