I will assure that special assistant attorneys general are selected on the basis of ability and that they are always fully committed to their assigned tasks, zealous in avoiding conflicts of interest, and truthful in their monthly billings.
I will upgrade the Office of Attorney General by inspiring, motivating, and improving our attorneys’ and officers’ professionalism.
I will restore integrity, responsibility and pride within the Louisiana Department of Justice.
I will bring better judgment and discretion to the office of Attorney General.
