Following successful efforts of maintaining the economic development district of Louisiana Avenue and Interstate 10, it has become evident that I still have work to do. Additional economic development remains a priority in the Moss Street corridor, the Simcoe Street corridor, Louisiana Avernue corridor and Pinhook Road corridor, all bustling connectors that we travel in our daily routines.
