- A progressive leadership hub that is the voice of good government and fiscal responsibility local, regionally and statewide.
- An economic development magnet for nationally and internationally, leading-edge technological, health and service-oriented businesses that has transformed the entire capital area into a thriving mecca.
- A public education system that is an example for not only the rest of the state but nationally and interanationally.
- A higher education environment that is the home of two nationally and internationally – recognized centers for academic excellence hub – Southern and L.S.U.
- A compassionate, understanding, proactive parish that has recognized, responded, and addressed that needs of its less fortunate residents.

His favorite quote is “It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high acheivement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory or defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt – “Citizenship in the Republic” Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910.
