Open Letter to Town of Arnaudville

4/17/14

Open letter to the town of Arnaudville:

I want to thank all who supported me through their votes and also through their words before the election and since the election.  For those who did not support my run, I offer a commitment to serve you, protect you and respect you as I will all citizens of Arnaudville – without prejudice or bias.  My door is open, and I invite anyone with concerns, ideas, or suggestions to come and express them to me.
 
In that vein, my detractors have engaged in name-calling, mockery and jeering.

A New Day is Dawning...

4/6/14

It was a close race.  Now comes the real work.  Promises made and promises to keep.  Leadership that will reshape our police department, restore trust and pride for our officers and citizens, and will bring an effective working relationship with the Town Council and the Mayor's Office.

We celebrated quietly at home surrounded by family and close friends who believe in my abilities, trusted that I could win, and gave me the lift each and every day that I needed to cross the finish line.
