Raymond, who was married for 21 years, has three sons, Billy Jr., Bryan and Byron. He is a member of the Mt. Airy Baptist Church in Boutte.
“After graduating from Hahnville High School, I attended Southeastern Louisiana University, in Hammond for four years and received a bachelor of science degree in social welfare,” Raymond said.
“I worked briefly as a probation officer in Baton Rouge,” he continued.
Raymond has served on several boards in St. Charles Parish and plans on improving recreational areas in Hahnville if he wins the council seat.
“I will work diligently on drainage improvements, employment opportunities, and to man every effort to bring recreational opportunities for all children into each community if I am chosen to represent District 1,” Raymond said.
“Children need a playground to go to and engage in sporting activities and some existing playgrounds could use upgrading,” he continued.
“There is a small playground in Killona but it’s very minimal in terms of recreational equipment that will attract kids and adults.”
Raymond has served on several boards in the parish.
“I currently serve on the Don Raymond Educational & Athletic Memorial board in honor of my brother who was an athlete at Hahnville High School that was killed in a car accident in 1969, Total Choice Federal Credit Union’s board, Mt. Airy Baptist Church Deacon Board and Trustee Board and St. Charles Parish District Junior Achievement Board.”
