Freddie DeCourt for Mayor - New Iberia, Louisiana



As a commercial general contractor, designer, small business owner, and community volunteer, I will continue to commit my creativity, drive, and energy to move New Iberia forward. My experience, spirit of community, and willingness to lead gives me the skill set to address our city’s serious issues and to attract new business and new residential developments. With energetic leadership, innovative ideas, and honest and open communication, I know we can build a stronger New Iberia.

Please consider my years of experience, volunteerism and commitment to our community in the upcoming election.
