What Would Nungesser, Dardenne Most Like To See If Elected Louisiana Lt. Governor
Written by 

Nungesser-DardenneIn this segment of the Alliance For Good Government forum Tuesday night, the candidates for Louisiana Lt. Governor Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser and incumbent Jay Dardenne were asked if elected what would be the one thing they would like to accomplish over the next four years


The following are rough summaries of their comments.

Please watch the video to see what they actually said:  


Go to every major company in this state and ask them for their vendor lists and to ask them to use Louisiana companies and if they are getting products from out of the state, we would ask those companies to locate here.

To have a team effort to analyze the budget and not to make political cuts but to have team effort of citizens and business people to tighten up (spending) and straighten up the taxes to make it more attractive for business and for people to retire here.

Regarding tourism, need to put the team together to decide how to spend the money and to provide for local people in the state.


The team is already in place and folks in tourism are behind my re-election.  The answer to the question asked is to see an increase to ten and hopefully 20 percent in revenues derived from tourism.  Every dollar invested returns twenty.  This is an industry that has not been galvanized in the past.  Tourism is business and jobs for Louisiana.

From the time I have been in office, we have increased employment in tourism by five percent, that is real jobs for people in Louisiana performed in Louisiana and at the same time to welcoming people into the state to invest here and hopefully to retire here.
