New Orleans is recognized worldwide for great food, history, and culture. We will continue to support our largest industry. I want to also build our reputation as a Global Jobs City. I believe that jobs that pay a true livable wage are the key to reducing poverty and therefore the key to reducing hopelessness and the crime that it creates. My goal is to add 40,000 new good-paying jobs in New Orleans through aggressive recruiting of Fortune 1000 companies, supporting the growth of our Healthcare Economy and Small Businesses, and tapping the Research and Technology potential of our local Universities. I will do this by incentivizing companies to relocate to New Orleans, aggressively recruit companies to come to New Orleans via a customized value proposition, and overhauling the training of our citizens so that they are prepared to take on the jobs of the future.
