Protecting Our Society From Crime

Chris believes that violent criminals and drug dealers must be held accountable for their actions. That means prison, not justice reinvestment reform. Chris supports legislation that toughens the penalties for fentanyl, methamphetamine, and opioid crimes. Chris will also oppose legalizing recreational drugs.

Protecting the Unborn

Chris is 100% pro-life. He supports educating young pregnant mothers about the services and resources available that can assist them in caring for their child in the hope that they will choose life. He will support new tax credits and incentives for adopting parents, including foster parents, to help alleviate the cost associated with the overall process.

Defending Families and Parents

As a Christian, a husband, and a father of two, Chris knows that our families are the fabric that keep our communities strong and healthy. We must defend the rights of Louisiana families. Chris will support legislation that defends our families standing firm against the indoctrination of anti-family curricula in our education system.

Defending Our 2nd Amendment Rights

Chris will always defend the right for law-abiding citizens to lawfully carry firearms in Louisiana. As State Representative, Chris will defend any attempt to weaken or restrict our right to bear arms. We must always have the right and ability to protect ourselves and families from danger and harm.

Supporting Our Military

Chris understands and appreciates the value of our military partners and the Barksdale Air Force Base community. Our area is home to all branches of the military except the Coast Guard and he knows the significance of community support for those branches. As State Representative, Chris will be a positive liaison with Barksdale to ensure their state-related concerns are met.

Supporting Law Enforcement and Firefighters/EMS

As retired law enforcement, Chris knows the sacrifice that first responders make on a daily basis. These brave men and women offer their lives every day to protect their community. He supports legislation that will provide first responders with the tools that they need to best serve the people of District 9.

Supporting Our Teachers

Chris is married to a career educator and has a deep understanding of the Louisiana Education System. He believes that teachers are underpaid and over regulated. He is committed to pursuing the means necessary to bring our teacher’s pay up to the regional average without raising taxes. Chris believes that this is the only way to recruit new teachers and retain those teaching now. He supports doing away with a tenure based system to allow leadership more latitude in disciplining and removing bad teachers. Chris supports more discipline in the classroom to allow every child the opportunity to learn. He will not support the teaching of any “woke” ideology nor anyone pushing a personal agenda on our children. He is a supporter of parental choice in their child’s school as well as more options in trade schools for young adults.

Supporting Economic and Infrastructure Improvements

District 9 is growing. As a small business owner, Chris relates to the frustration with the complicated systems in place that do not facilitate growth and development. Now is the time to create policies that will better support safe bridges, clean water and effective communication networks which are all basic infrastructure issues. Considering the explosive growth of District 9, Chris will pursue economic development initiatives that will help, not hinder our future growth and support a community we love. He understands the benefit of working together to improve the quality of life and economic well-being for District 9.
