President’s Message

Dear Association Members and Friends,

“You have enemies? Good. That means that you stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
(Winston Churchill)

A few years ago, I taught a class for some John Jay College students who all had designs on one day becoming an Inspector General. I asked them if they truly understood what they were signing up for. Were they willing to stand up for what was right, alone if necessary? Even if it meant making enemies? My advice to them was that if their answer to any of those questions was “no”, then they needed to pick another career. Shortly after I was appointed as Louisiana State Inspector General back in 2008, former Massachusetts and New Orleans IG Robert Cerasoli told me: “Stephen, if you do this job right, they will eventually try to shut you down.” Sure enough, in 2012 it happened, and there was a high-profile fight for the survival of the Louisiana IG. We won that fight with the help of ordinary citizens, good government groups, and a lot of media coverage. I am still here, still vigilant, and still doing my best to “do the job right” one day at a time.
