Joan Landry

Livingston Parish District 5 Parish Councilwoman Joan Landry seeks re-election in the Oct. 24 election.

“This past four-year term has been a remarkable experience,” said Landry. “I have represented the interests of my district and look forward to serving the families and businesses in District 5 for another four years.”

She said a goal for the next term is to establish a “fair method for the council to establish the road priorities for our overlay program.”

“The priorities should be taken out of the hands of the council members and placed in the hands of the Department of Public Works and the parish engineer,” she said.

Landry said she plans to have the council work with the Livingston Economic Development Council, the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce, the Livingston Board of Realtors, the parish president and all parish officials to present a positive image for the parish.

Landry said she will continue to work to find solutions for animal control and mosquito control.

Landry, 61, a Republican, is president of Joan Landry Insurance Agency Inc. and a member of the Livingston Economic Development Council, the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce, Livingston Parish Republican Women Association, Livingston Board of Realtors and a board member for Denham Springs Sewer District 1.

She has been married to Roy Landry since 1980 and has two children and two grandchildren.

Landry received a bachelor’s degree from LSU and a master’s degree from Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts.
