Senator Beth Mizell Announces Campaign for Re-election

Senator Beth Mizell (R-Franklinton) will be seeking re-election this fall. Beth Mizell was first elected
to the State Senate in 2015. She is completing her first term. The election will be held on October 12th, coinciding with the gubernatorial election. District 12 encompasses all of Washington Parish and significant portions of Tangipahoa Parish and St. Tammany Parish.

“It  has been my honor to serve District 12 in the State Senate for the past 4 years,” said Mizell. "I am pleased at many of our accomplishments for the citizens here but there is still plenty of work to do.”

Mizell acquired funding this year to begin building state highway 3241, which will connect St. Tammany Parish to Washington Parish. She ended the wasteful Washington Parish Reservoir Commission and re-allocated the remaining $700,00 to improvements at Bogue Chitto State Park.  Mizell formed a Broadband Task Force in the Senate to eliminate all obstacles to providing broadband to rural Louisiana communities.

Mizell also authored important legislation in 2017 which required minors to show a proof of ID before receiving an abortion. This past session, she carried the landmark Love Life Amendment on the Senate Floor to its final passage and signage by Governor Edwards.

Senator Mizell was also honored to chair the committee to Bring the Wall to Our Veterans, which facilitated the Vietnam Wall visiting Franklinton in 2018.

“I feel like in my first term, I have been able to fight against wasteful spending, increased taxes and big government action while still achieving much needed accomplishments for District 12,” said Mizell. “I look forward to a second term where we can do even more for our community, especially with rural access to broadband internet.”
