Hi!  I am "Vinney" St. Blanc

 

I am Vincent J. "Vinney" St. Blanc and I want to be YOUR voice representing Louisiana House of Representatives District 50 which encompasses St. Mary & St. Martin Parishes. I am a lifelong Louisianan experienced in the business, political and education sectors of our State and a seasoned problem solver and negotiator.

The son of an oil field owner with first hand knowledge of the oil and gas industry with my career beginnings as a Louisiana educator and later coupled with entrepreneurial and political service has given me vast knowledge and great understanding of our State's economic and tax structure. My appointment to the Louisiana's Community and Technical Colleges Board by Governor Kathleen Blanco, Governor Bobby Jindal and Governor John Bel Edwards has given me the opportunity to help grow the work force through continuing education and economic development.

On October 12, I humbly as for your vote to continue the progress set forth by State Representative Sam Jones as his seat becomes term limited.
