Issues

When asked to state his platform for his candidacy, Ceasar identified his top priorities:

  1. Jobs: "I would venture to say the state of Louisiana has probably about 11-14% unemployment."
  2. Health care reform: "Louisiana has a very high percentage of population on Medicaid for both children and certain elderly who are qualified for it."
  3. Education: "Education and health care are unprotected budgets in the state of Louisiana. If I am elected governor, they will be priorities and they will be protected."
  4. Income tax: "I would eliminate the income tax. There is sufficient funds here to run the state in an efficient manner."[4]
