Mandie Landry believes that having strong values includes the willingness to fight for them. She is the strong voice we need to support and protect where we live and work.
Mandie grew up in a New Orleans area working-class home. Her father was a plumber; her mother a school secretary. Her younger sister and brother are both teachers.
She was the first person in her family to graduate from college, thanks to scholarships from Notre Dame and Georgetown Law. The commitment to service and advocacy that she learned from her family and through her education informs her legal work and service to her community to this day. For over 14 years, Mandie has advocated on behalf of local small businesses, the underprivileged, and non-profits; she also devotes part of her practice to advocating for women.
Mandie’s demonstrated work ethic and pride in her community has prepared her to work right away for our families in District 91. In Baton Rouge, she will have the courage to address the complex issues that impact our lives: fighting for fair wages and benefits, and ensuring and expanding access to quality, affordable health care. After watching her own father suffer and succumb to mesothelioma, Mandie knows that health care is a right, not a privilege.

As our state representative, Mandie will be a hardworking voice for our teachers, who need a raise; for continued reform of the state’s criminal justice system, to ensure that every person is treated fairly; for a fair wage and equal pay for all working people; and for increased funding for early childhood education.
Mandie is ready to be our voice, fighting for the things that matter most to our families and neighborhoods. District 91 is about everyday people...all people...and Mandie is one of us. Let’s move Louisiana forward, together.
