Jared’s Record for Council District D.

A Safer, More Affordable City

Over the past several years, the results have been clear: New Orleans is on a roll. But Jared knows our work isn’t done yet. Making New Orleans a safer, more affordable city for working families is Jared’s #1 goal.

To accomplish that, Jared believes we must focus on three critical tasks:

  • First, our citizens need more and better jobs.
  • Second, our citizens must feel safe on our streets and in their homes.
  • And finally, our city’s crumbling infrastructure must be rebuilt to foster economic growth.
