Jean-Paul “JP” Morrell is the State Senator for District 3, which spans across parts of St. Bernard, Orleans, and Jefferson Parishes. While District 3 neighborhoods are diverse, we have a lot more in common than not. JP represents our shared interests to get the job done. As a husband and father of two, JP is known as the state’s champion for families. He fights for the issues and policies that support women and children to keep families and communities strong. A powerhouse in the Senate, JP works with the entire New Orleans Metro Area delegation to ensure that District 3’s interests are always being represented well.
Louisiana Senate District 3 is a long, narrow district that sweeps across Southeast Louisiana from Marrero in the Southwest, across Chalmette, to New Orleans East in the Northeast and Gentilly in the Northwest. Every neighborhood in the district is unique, and each one has specific issues and priorities. But the residents of District 3 are more similar than not. We all want good paying jobs, safe neighborhoods, and a strong education system to ensure the future. We’ve all suffered through hurricanes and the BP oil spill, and we have all worked hard — and continue to work hard — to come back better than ever. JP believes that by bringing diverse communities together for common goals, we can create opportunities for everyone.
