Hi, my name is Brian Ross. I am 50 years old. I am the owner of OK Computers in Denham Springs, and I am running for Livingston Parish Council District 3.
Livingston Parish is a wonderful place to live, and I would like to help keep it that way by getting involved with the local government. I want this parish to be all it can be for my family, friends, and neighbors. I want to ensure a clean healthy environment with clean water, effective drainage, and sewer services for future generations.
We must bring Fiscal Conservatism back to the parish with complete transparency to strengthen the people's trust. We must work diligently to find ways to cut government spending and reduce debt. With this, we can fund more Parish wide needs without putting more tax burdens on the people. We need common sense and fiscally conservative budgeting of parish funds. Relentlessly work on obtaining more grant funds for the ever-expanding need for flood protection and infrastructure improvements.
We cannot alleviate our flooding issues without first repairing our current drainage system to pre-flood condition. We can't build on something that is broken. The concept of incorporating drainage and sewer into a new master plan may be correct but the people cannot wait that long for flood relief. They need it now! There are areas now with problems of flooding whereas never before. This is due to damages to, and debris still in, our drainage system. We all understand it takes time and resources to deal with an unprecedented event like the flood of 2016, but it has been three years.
The continued growth and new developments are putting more burden on our already overburdened infrastructure and failing drainage and sewer systems. There must be more oversight on these developments to prevent more negative impacts on the neighboring communities.
When elected, I will work tirelessly to make sure that the people's voice is heard. To help make sure that the will of the citizens of Livingston Parish is recognized, I will work to get more people engaged in the governmental process. We should strengthen the bridge between the people and the parish government.
Livingston Parish has become an economic leader in the state. Not only should we keep it that way, but we should strive to become an economic leader in the region. I will hold this office in the highest of regard with integrity, honesty, and compassion.
