Everything in my work history has prepared me to lead a major law enforcement division. From serving as Kenner’s city prosecutor to helping lead the $2.2 billion government of Jefferson Parish as Chief Operating Officer, I have gained invaluable administrative experience. As both a former elected and appointed official, I valued the distinctiveness of serving a community. But across my varied career, I have mostly treasured the 21 years I spent as a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Officer. Protecting our people and property was always a gratifying experience to me. The responsibility of protecting lives is an awesome one that requires complete dedication. I love the city of Kenner and have deep admiration for the men and women of the Kenner Police Department. While I will miss the parish government, if it is the will of the voters, I will be honored to protect one of our state’s greatest cities.
