Louisiana District 9
Conrad Appel - Republican
Senator Conrad Appel has held the position of Louisiana District 9 State Senator since 2008. Senator Appel serves as Chair of the Senate Education Committee and has worked diligently to make sure that parents and educators have a voice in committee hearings and a chance to share their input about education policy that affects their students.
Senator Appel’s voting record makes clear his consistency in putting kids before politics and voting for what is best for students. Senator Appel has worked hard to make sure parents’ know how their student’s school is doing through the use of a simple ‘A-F’ report card, no child in the state of Louisiana is stuck in a failing school, and that there’s local control of standards and curriculum with those closest to the students – parents, principals, and teachers – having the ability to make decisions they know are in the students’ best interest.
As president of Construction South, and a graduate of Louisiana State University, Senator Appel has supported JumpStart – a program that provides high school students a clear path to over 40 high-paying careers.
