Patrick C. Williams
Announces Bid for
State Representative, District #4
P.O. Box 71163-0945
Patrick C. Williams is the son of Christene and the late A.C Williams, who reside in the MLK area in the University Park subdivision. Patrick is married to a wonderful woman of 17 years, Karanda Jackson Williams, a local court reporter and daughter of the late Kermit R. Jackson, Sr. and Charles "Etta Nancy" Jackson.
Patrick received a bachelor's degree in Architecture Engineering from Southern University. He then received his master's (MBA) from Centenary College, and is currently pursuing his PhD. in Applied Management and Decision Science with a specialization in Organizational Leadership from Walden University. Patrick is Graduate of the Senior Executives in State and Local Government Class of 2010 from the HARVARD Kennedy School Executive Education.
William's core values are faith, family, integrity, justice, loyalty, and respect. He notes just having experience and education is not the only qualifications, but more importantly you need a love for the people in the community in which you are willing to serve. Having a commitment and an invested interest in serving people and not yourself are the most important criteria as a public servant. As a Chairman of the Sub Committee of Appropriation on Criminal Justice and safety, a member of the Appropriations committee and a member of the Natural recourses committee, Williams' primary focus as the State Representative has been education, healthcare reform, and the elderly.
"What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us. What we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal."
Choosing not to just "Talk the Talk", Representative Williams actually Walks the Walk, literally. He walks 226 miles, from Shreveport to Baton Rouge before each session to bring awareness to Childhood Obesity. US. Senator Mary Landrieu and Congressman John Flemings acknowledge Representative Williams' efforts in Washington D.C. for his fight against Childhood Obesity. Representative Williams has made this trek three years in a row and has been named Legislature of the year by the YMCA for his unselfish journey. Representative Williams was also named "State Representative of the Year" by the Louisiana Assembly on School Based Health Care.
