• Become one of the top 10 states for people served by its Workforce Investment Act program.
• Expanded its workforce development programs to include Louisiana Rehabilitation Services.
• Re-engineered the unemployment insurance system into a re-employment program.
• Made the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund one of the five strongest in the nation.
• Implemented workers’ compensation medical treatment guidelines.
He previously served as director of marketing for Louisiana Health Care Review Inc., and as city editor of The Advocate newspaper in Baton Rouge. He holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.
