Louisiana needs a reset.
A reset is something we do when we are willing to admit we must change our path forward to achieve the results we all want for the future. It requires the building of political will to make decisive changes that enable a new opportunity to reach our potential as a state and as a people.
Louisiana knows how to do this.
As we look to reset Louisiana’s future, the easy way is to give in to our failings and give up on efforts to make our state a better place to live and do business. The harder way – and the right way – is to envision a greater state for Louisiana citizens and continue to press for change.
It is true that the list of positive changes not yet made is a long one, but we should not forget that other list, the breakthrough successes that have, over the past 30 years, each made Louisiana a little bit better place.
