ABOUT CLAY

“I understand the people and places of District 81. With a firm grasp of the issues we face, I will continue to be an effective voice for you in state government.” 

It is an honor and privilege to represent you in our state legislature. I will continue to work to bring increased economic opportunities to our district, support efforts to strengthen our educational system, improve infrastructure and protect the way of life we all enjoy and wish to pass on to future generations. I humbly ask for your support so I may continue to work on behalf of the people of our district and Louisiana.
As the owner/operator of a small business, I have a unique perspective into important legislation affecting the 80,000 small companies with employees in Louisiana. I know what it means to go to work, manage a business, meet a payroll and pay taxes. It’s important that your representative have that knowledge and experience as every vote on business issues affects someone’s livelihood.
