Meet Richie Lewis

Richie's Story

Born and raised in St. Bernard Parish, Richie Lewis is as local as they come. He grew up in Chalmette and has deep roots across the parish he calls home.
Richie is a husband, father, and small business owner who loves serving up good food at his two local restaurants. When he’s not working, you can often find him enjoying the great outdoors – riding four wheelers, camping, or just hanging out with family and friends in his backyard.
Richie is passionate about bringing people together. He believes in the strength of the St. Bernard community and has seen firsthand the parish’s resilience. Richie has dedicated much of his life to public service because he wants to make a difference. He has served locally in various roles focused on improving the day-to-day lives of residents.
As your next State Representative, Richie will take his collaborative spirit and get-things-done work ethic to the capital. He’ll be a voice for St. Bernard Parish and advocate for practical solutions to address the issues that matter most.
Richie bleeds St. Bernard – it’s who he is and what drives him. He’ll work hard for his hometown and be a relentless fighter for the interests of this community he knows and loves.
