District - 2
Welcome to my Legislative Web page. It is indeed an honor and privilege to
represent the citizens of District 2 in the Louisiana State Senate. District 2
is mainly drawn from what is more commonly known as “The River Parishes”, which
encompasses parts of St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, and St. James parishes.
The district also includes a large portion of Iberville and West Baton Rouge
parishes, and also parts of the bayou region parishes of Ascension, Assumption,
As a standing member of the Health and Welfare, Environmental Quality, and
Transportation, Highways, and Public Works Committees, I am well positioned to
address the many issues that exist throughout the District. I intend to provide
the people of District 2 with a solution-oriented form of leadership based on my
many years of business accomplishments over the last twenty years throughout
this district. I will also serve on the Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Committee,
which dictates how Capital Outlay dollars are spent and considers any revenue
raising measures. I will also serve as a member of the Select Committee on
page has been developed as a tool to learn about the ongoing works of the
Louisiana Legislature relevant to issues and concerns that surround District 2,
along with issues and concerns that affect the entire geographic River Region.
Please contact me at your convenience to offer comments or ask questions. My
staff and I look forward to hearing from you as we stand ready to assist in
whatever manner necessary.
