Why I'm Running

Citizens in Louisiana deserve resources to help heal and resolve the ills they face. Future generations are depending on us to make the world a better place, and I possess the insight, values and passion to represent everyone. I PROMISE TO ALWAYS BE TRUTHFUL, TRANSPARENT, AND PUT PEOPLE FIRST!

As you may recall, when I first entered the Congressional race, I confessed my entering was based upon my spiritual convictions. After much prayer, I do not feel relieved of this assignment. After reviewing the November 2020 election results, despite all of the odds against our campaign:

  • 3 hurricanes, 1 tornado, Covid-19
  • No Democratic Party endorsement
  • No high-profile endorsement
  • Shoe string budget

We only had the Word that God gave me (to run) and the will of the people, and with that: We won 21 of the 24 parishes over the other Democratic candidates and 17 of the 24 parishes over the #2 Republican candidate. 

Again, after much prayer, my family, support team, volunteers and supporters are pleased to report that we will be running for the March 20, 2021 Special Election to become your next U.S. Congressional Representative from Louisiana’s 5th District. The 5 th Congressional District needs a leader who will passionately represent all of its diverse citizens. The 5 th District is the largest, poorest, and most rural district. Health care, education, job availability, support for small businesses, teacher retirement, and support for farmers and loggers, remain major concerns that plague our district.

Business owners, developers, struggling entrepreneurs, I am with you, and I will fight for you and your future, as relentlessly as I would fight for my own family and small business. We have Democrats, Republicans, Independents, voters and non-voters in our district, and I want you to know that I have sat on both sides of the desk, and I have intimate insight, compassion, and understanding, I understand you, I care about you, and what you care about, and I will represent and fight for you too.

It is obvious that there is a divine plan at work, and you want to ensure that you are on the right side of victory. We must not take our eyes off the prize of “that more perfect union.” We must be one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all! I humbly ask for your prayers, your full support, and your vote.

2020 is a year that forced us to take a pause and reflect hard...

It is the year we celebrated 100 years of women's suffrage and the right for women to vote.

It is the year that the sleeping giant in each of us were awakened to a greater degree as we realize:

Each morning is truly a present.

Each day spent with a loved one during this COVID-19 pandemic is a truly a gift.

2020 is the year that we were awakened to the sanctity of our democracy and the need to protect it by exercising our right to vote!

2020 reminded us of our past struggles and it reminded us that the struggle continues with rigor even today.

2020 reminded us that the sacrifice and hard work to ensure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for everyone is worth the sacrifice!

This year we have the opportunity to make history again by electing the first woman to be Vice President of the United States of America and electing the first woman of color to ever represent the state of Louisiana in our U.S. Congress.

While creating this unique artwork I wanted all of this to be reflected for you and future generations to admire.

Your donation of $100 and a small $5 mailing fee will result in your hand-signed and numbered artwork being delivered to your home/ office address via U.S. Mail.

This is perfect for framing and sharing with future generations of leaders.

Thank you in advance for your donation and support.

Our goal is for 1000 women/ men to donate $100. toward this legacy gift so please donate now and pass this information on to your friends and group members.

Team Work Makes The Dream Work!
