“My wife of 18 wonderful years, Christie Keller and I have two children: Allie, 18, and Andrea, 12.
I am a communicant of Holy Cross Church and a member of the Krewe of Adonis.
I am running for mayor because I believe we need new leadership and a new direction for our city. As someone who has successfully run a business in these challenging times, I believe I can bring a fresh approach to some of the issues we are facing. Morgan City has been good to my family. I am certain that my extensive business, vessel construction, vessel repair, salvage experience, and every day dealings with regulatory agencies like USCG, ABS, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, EPA, DEQ, parish and state governments makes me the right choice to be your next mayor. I would appreciate the opportunity to serve you and would appreciate your vote.”
