Thinking Out Of The Box
(Q) --- Why I’m running for
(A) --- I want to influence Public Policy.
(Q) --- Exactly what is Public
(A)-----Public Policy is action or inaction chosen by public
authorities, government, to address a societal problem.
(Q) --- How is Public Policy
(A) --- By crystallizing an idea, that is, giving a definite, precise,
and usually permanent form as well as substance to a new perspective; and persuading the public of its merit!
(Q) --- How do you plan to influence
(A) --- It
begins with having a vision and thinking out of the box.
Next, you must have a plan. At present, I serve as a volunteer
Lafayette Parish Planning
Commissioner. I’ve learned that if you’re
going to influence change, you must know the outcome and the
impact it will have
on all stakeholders. Promoting stakeholders interest is the
reason for influencing Public Policy. I’m going to influence
public policy through
collaboration, negotiation and coalition-building. I
will use my effective negotiating skills to reach consensus to deliver
for us. The stakeholders of District 44
is the interest group I will represent and serve.
