Julia Fisher-Perrier is seeking re-election of the District 7 seat on the St. Charles Parish Council.
“I pledge to continue to serve constituents by actively participating in community activities and serving as a liaison to fulfill the needs of not only District 7, but also the entire parish,” Fisher-Perrier said.
Fisher-Perrier plans to continue to aid in the comprehensive plan for West Bank Levee Protection. She said she will fight for residents facing devastating effects of FEMA and NFIP [National Flood Insurance Program] through support of an ongoing flood map appeal.
She hopes to encourage continued growth of industry and local business, and will continue to be a voice for locally owned businesses.
Fisher-Perrier has served as council chair, chair of the council’s hurricane protection committee, as ex-officio member of the St. Charles Parish Housing Authority, member of the Paul Maillard executive committee, member of the St. Charles Parish Hazard mitigation committee, member of the levee focus team, as well as other local, state and federal committees.
“I will continue to use my energetic approach to communicating our needs, as a parish, to local, state and federal delegates,” she said.
Fisher-Perrier, a lifelong resident of the area, is a third-generation resident of St. Charles Parish.
She and her husband, Craig Perrier Jr. of Destrehan, live in Luling and have a son, Eli Perrier, who attends Hahnville High School and enjoys playing baseball.
Fisher-Perrier is also a graduate of Hahnville High School and attended the University of New Orleans as a political science and pre-law major.
She is a licensed insurance agent at Riverlands Insurance, also in Luling. Her husband, Craig, is a teacher and coach at Destrehan High School, where he graduated. The couple are raising their son on the street where Fisher-Perrier grew up.
“I am home grown and here to stay,” Fisher-Perrier said. “I am a neighbor, a friend, a mom, a taxpayer and a businesswoman. I understand the needs of our parish because it is home to me, too.”
