“I am pleased and honored to announce my candidacy for Louisiana Senate District 2,” Lyons said. “During my life, I have gained an understanding of the issues that affect District 2.

“Most importantly, the role for the District 2 Senator should be to speak the voices of the people of the district. There are many issues coming before us and I know that every voter in District 2 will accept the responsibility of being a public servant, and help guide the growth of District 2. The District 2 Senator should be an active communications link between the people and the Legislature.

“As Senator, I will be a valued nonpartisan leader, by taking advantage of my experience, skills, and perspectives, gained from my lifetime of being self-employed and community activism. I look forward to a positive campaign, meeting citizens, and learning more about the district’s challenges.”

Lyons, a Nicholls State graduate, is married to Rebecca Lyons, Department Head of Nursing at Nicholls State University. He is the father of a son, David, and daughter, Katherine Lyons Thibodeaux. His first grandchild is on the way.
