State Rep. Stuart Bishop, R-Lafayette, has announced that he will seek re-election to continue representing District 43 in the Louisiana House of Representatives.
Bishop shared the news with his family, friends and supporters at his home Tuesday.
Bishop is completing his first term in the Louisiana Legislature, where he represents south Lafayette, Broussard and Youngsville.
“I’m honored to represent Lafayette Parish and am thankful for the opportunity to continue serving our community,” Bishop said in a written statement. “Over the past four years, I’ve worked hard to pass common sense legislation to bring greater transparency to state government, strengthen ethics standards, cut bureaucratic red tape for families and businesses, protect our oil and gas industry, improve voting opportunities, access and technology and sustain our sportsman’s paradise. I’m ready to continue moving our Louisiana forward.”
The primary election will take place Oct. 24. The deadline for qualifying for this election is Sept. 10.
