Roy Daryl Adams is stepping forward as the State Representative for District #62, a region now redefined due to recent re-districting. Upon examining the new map, questions arose about whether the needs of rural East Felicianas align with those in the northern part of East Baton Rouge. Engaging with residents from both areas, it became clear that despite geographical differences, their core needs are fundamentally similar.
One of Adams' central focuses is on youth empowerment. He envisions robust education programs to guide the youth towards positive paths. For those already within the justice system, he emphasizes the importance of educational and counseling programs to prepare them for successful reintegration into society.
In the realm of education, Adams advocates for fair funding for all K-12 schools, as well as streamlined pathways for higher education and vocational training. This approach ensures that individuals are equipped with the necessary skills to fill jobs in an evolving job market.
Accessible and affordable healthcare is a priority for Adams, aiming to ensure every citizen can easily avail of healthcare services.
Additionally, Adams emphasizes the necessity to address the needs of the elderly and disabled, focusing on housing, healthcare, food, and recreation that meet their abilities.
Public safety is a cornerstone of Adams' agenda. He emphasizes the need for better pay and training for officers, along with advocating for tougher penalties for violent crimes, especially those involving children and the elderly. The protection of victims is a key consideration in his proposed reforms.
Acknowledging the potential of education and trade programs, Adams believes they could significantly reduce prisoners' sentences and contribute to a better society.
Addressing homelessness is an essential aspect of Adams' vision, which encompasses housing, education, counseling, and job opportunities.
Infrastructure is a significant part of Adams' agenda, with a budget of $46.5 billion earmarked for improvements in roads, sewer/water systems, maintenance at educational institutions, and coastal protection and restoration.
In the recent legislative session, Adams and his team accomplished an impressive feat, completing 409 bills and 22 constitutional amendments. However, he acknowledges that there is still much more to be done to meet the needs and concerns of the community.
Lastly, Adams encourages civic engagement by highlighting the upcoming early voting period from 9/30 to 10/07 and the Election Day on October 14, 2023. He invites the community to reach out with any questions, concerns, or suggestions, eagerly looking forward to engaging with them in this transformative journey.
