Pearson’s Mission

“Many would be shocked to learn that even now, in 2020, a large number of rural Louisiana residents have virtually no access to the internet. Some parishes have as few as 10% of their residents online.

Today, we are moving toward distance learning, teleworking, and telemedicine – and certainly no business is going to move to an area without connectivity. I want to change that – for our jobs, for our kids, and for the future of Louisiana.”

Kevin Pearson, District 1 Candidate for Louisiana Public Service Commissioner

Pearson’s History

In his 12 years in the Louisiana House of Representatives, Kevin Pearson led with more than just a voting record.

Kevin authored constitutional amendments that saved taxpayers many millions of dollars.

Kevin was appointed early in his tenure to serve as retirement chair and was trusted to the position for ten years, guiding legislation that protects teacher pensions and insulates taxpayers from bankrupt retirement systems.

Long before politics Kevin built a successful business and, with his wife Nancy, a teacher, raised two children, Adam and Rebecca. Both are now proud graduates of state public universities with bright futures ahead. Kevin wants successful outcomes for all Louisiana families.

Kevin knows firsthand that success doesn’t come easy. During the oil bust of the ‘80s, Kevin made the decision to leave college to work with his father to help build his business. Just like now, times were challenging and uncertain.

Kevin wants better for you and your children. He wants to keep working so that you are able to keep more of your earnings, with safe and affordable utilities.

When you vote on Nov. 3, elect the proven leader—the proven listener—and make a difference for Louisiana. You’ll see the results. You won’t be sorry.
