Working for District 96 in Baton Rouge
District 96 was moved into the Acadiana area as a result of the redistricting of the Louisiana Legislature following the 2010 Census. Prior to the 2011 redistricting, District 96 had been located in New Orleans. Terry Landry is the first representative of the re-configured district in its new home — Iberia, St. Martin and Lafayette parishes.
As State Representative for District 96, Terry has become a unique voice for a unique district. Here are photos taken over the past three sessions showing him working for his district.
