A Letter from Robin

Dear Voter,

I never planned on running for office. Since I was a child, I always wanted to be a teacher. I achieved that dream in 2006 and taught for eight years in the public school system, mostly in Livingston Parish.

I stopped teaching when we adopted two of our children from foster care and I gave birth in the same year. You could say things got a little busy, so I paused my role as a teacher to focus on my children. I knew it was also best for my students to get the quality attention they deserve from another teacher ready to step into that role. My kids are doing great, and I am ready to once again be a public servant—but this time as your Representative in the State Capitol. I am ready to commit the care and attention I give to my own children to the people of this district.

Women make up less than 15% of the legislature, and many of the men that represent us are lawyers or businessmen. While their experience is helpful to the state, it is time for our state legislature to have a balanced representation of the people—we need teachers and mothers, too!

I am the oldest sister from a family of 14 siblings. Being part of a large family taught me how to work with others, lead, and love, even if we don’t always agree. I am committed to looking beyond party and focusing on YOU. We are more than Democrats, Republicans, or Independents. We are human beings who care about building a strong future for our children.

I hope to earn your support and vote on Saturday, October 12th!
