ERIKA GREEN COVID GRAPHIC 6.25.20

EARLY VOTING DATES: October 20-27
ELECTION DATE: November 3, 2020

I’m serving in the Metro City Council because our community deserves more.

More economic opportunity. More affordable housing. More quality education. More public transportation. More job training.

The status quo – underfunded schools, gridlock traffic, rising housing costs – isn’t good enough.
We need continuous, progressive leadership to confront the challenges facing Baton Rouge. I will make sure our community and our city are working to make our lives better.

Economic opportunity for everyone in our community. We must support investment from large companies while making the tax code fairer for small businesses and working families.

Affordable housing options for all residents. Baton Rouge is experiencing tremendous growth – we must work to ensure this growth benefits local residents and preserves our quality of life.

Quality education begins with adequate funding for all public schools. Every child deserves a high-quality education and every teacher deserves the resources needed to do their job.
