Ascension Parish Listening Tour

“Ascension Parish has an abundance of resources, a strong local economy, and offers an unparalleled quality of life. To ensure that our parish continues to reach its full potential through responsible growth, it is critical that we have input from you, our community members, on your priorities, concerns, and experiences so that we can put forth the most effective solutions based on insightful collaboration and public opinion.

This summer, I will be holding a listening tour throughout the parish to listen and understand your needs and concerns, and then use this insight for resource allocation and investment planning for a sustainable future in Ascension Parish. I invite you to join me at one of these upcoming public meetings. You will have the opportunity to learn more about initiatives underway while also providing valuable feedback and sharing your priorities regarding parish improvements and solutions to problems.

Additionally, we recently launched Open Finance, a new user-friendly dashboard that offers total budget transparency for Ascension Parish residents. I encourage you to visit the Open Finance website and review the current state of our parish’s finances. Go to to learn more.”
