State Rep. Wesley Bishop for
State Senate - District 4
Thank you for visiting my website.
It's no secret that our city is experiencing some tough times. Since 2005, the residents of New Orleans East and the Lower and Upper Ninth Ward have waited for the promise of schools, hospitals, restaurants and other basic services.
I am proud to say that progress is being made to bring our city back to full life again. The list of projects is growing: Eastern New Orleans Hospital and Library, 2 Wal-Marts (East and Gentilly), Big Lots, DMV, and others.
However, there is still much work to be done.
I would like to tell you just how proud I am to serve as your representative in the Louisiana Legislature.
I ran for this office because I felt that it was critical that we send someone to Baton Rouge who was ready, willing and able to hit the ground running to fight for the city that we love.
In my time in office I have tried to do just that by working to pass legislation that would improve the quality of life for my district - and fighting equally as hard to defeat measures that I felt were not in the best interest of the people I was elected to represent.
As a lifelong resident of New Orleans East and the Lower Ninth Ward, I am well aware of the problems we continue to face. As someone who has served as an attorney, educator and community leader, I am confident in our ability to bring about the change necessary to move New Orleans and Louisiana forward. Together we can make our community what we want it to be. Now is the time to step up because this is our city...this is our future...this is our time!
Working Hard to Make You Proud,
