House District 96 Representative Terry Landry has announced his intention to seek re-election to the Louisiana House of Representatives in the October 24th legislative elections.
He issued the following statement:
“Four years ago, voters in Iberia, St. Martin and Lafayette parishes placed their trust in me to represent them from this new district in our region. I was humbled by their confidence in me and I have tried every day to honor their trust through my work on their behalf in the Legislature.
“For the past four years, I have worked within the constraints imposed on our state by our governor to use limited state resources to respond to the needs of the people in House District 96. This district, you may recall, was shifted to our area in the redistricting that followed the 2010 Census. Since being elected, it has been my duty and my pleasure to help identify and create an awareness of the district, its people and our needs.
“This work has been as personally gratifying as any work I have done in my life. I have decided to ask for your support to continue this work for another four years.
“Therefore, I will be a candidate for re-election on the October 24th ballot. I once again ask for your support to serve you and our district in Baton Rouge.”
