I, Marcus M. Lambert, am a candidate for Councilman in district six.

I respectfully ask for your support. I will lead your voice where it needs to go. The future is not a place we are going to, it is a place we are creating, letís create it together.

Our district has experienced unprecedented growth in the recent years. It is important that we have an energetic, motivated, solution oriented individual to lead us through the logical progression of our community. I possess these qualities and will use them to the betterment of our district.

I am the vice chairman of our, St. Charles Parish planning and Zoning Commission. My successes with a prominent fortune 100 financial company in regional business development and divisional production management have bestowed experience needed to work with our local, state, and federal government to secure funds and manage our tax dollars to maintain and progress our community. When elected I will focus on:

•Hurricane protection levees that are not up to standard and are absent in some areas of our district. It is imperative that we work to prompt completion of our hurricane protection systems.

•Aggressively work to maintain our current drainage channels. Also, with the growth of our community, we face new drainage challenges. I will work with our planning commission to ensure new developments are properly structured for drainage.

•I see recreation areas that need to be brought up to time. I will work with the leaders in our recreation department to make sure the children of our district have first class parks and continue to keep them up to current standards.

•Sub-standard roads are becoming an increasing problem in our district. I will work to provide road overlay where necessary and monitor routine maintenance.

•Work with our local volunteer fire departments to ensure they are sufficiently funded to protect our community.

•Work with the state department of transportation to improve the safety of our state highway intersections.

I am a lifelong resident of St. Charles Parish. As Iíve grown within district six, Iíve come to know, befriend, and enjoy the residents and community that we live in. Iím a graduate of Destrehan High School and have earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Louisiana State University. I have recently married Amber Briseno. We are enjoying our new home in district six and are anxious to grow within it.
