This year, Sister District is proud to support our first Louisiana candidate ever: Dr. Tammy Savoie, running for Louisiana State House of Representatives District 94. Tammy has been hard on the campaign trail in 2019, supported by Sister District’s volunteer teams in New Orleans and throughout the South – in fact, her campaign manager is also a district captain for Sister District! We asked Tammy to explain a little bit about her personal journey, why she decided to run for office, and the policy she intends to work on if elected.
I’m Dr. Tammy Savoie – I’m a Louisiana native, a Mom, a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, and a clinical psychologist. Hard work and determination have always driven me and that’s the representation Louisianans deserve: someone who will work hard and look out for them.
I’m a clinical psychologist who deployed to Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. I worked at the Pentagon improving healthcare for our soldiers. The U.S. military was a family to my daughter and always looked out for her at each new base. My Jefferson and Orleans Parish roots and family along with my military family taught me and my daughter the valuable lesson of take care and protect that which we hold dear.
“I chose to run for office because I could not very well look at the state of my state and not take action. My 38+ years in the military has trained me to keep going when things get tough. As so many others have done, I thought “why not me?” I am committed to making the changes I know my state needs and that is why I became politically active.
I am most proud of our people. We are a strong, resilient, fun-loving, community-focused people. We take care of each other. My representation will be led by what the majority of the individuals in district 94, and the state generally, need to make their lives better. I am running for state representative because our people work hard and I truly believe that Louisiana should be working for them.”
Louisiana is a unique and beautiful state, both environmentally and culturally – there is no place quite like it. And yet, life shouldn’t be so hard for so many Louisianans.”
Answer every call. Respond to every email. Work hard. Fight hard. Get results. It doesn’t matter which political party is in charge—as a member of the Louisiana House representing District 94, Tammy Savoie will work hard every day to achieve real results.
Ask questions, drill down, and understand the priorities of the people of our District. Our leaders have stopped listening to the people. That ends with Dr. Tammy Savoie as a Representative for District 94.
Tammy will be a strong, independent voice for the working families of District 94. Tammy’s military leadership experience taught her to work across the aisle. We get more done by working together. This is the solution to get the results we need to support small businesses, support mothers and children, support education and teachers, and get our economy working for all families.
As District 94 Representative I will tackle local issues with gusto! My motto is: A strong business environment means a strong community and a strong community means a strong business environment. In order to create and sustain a strong community we must take care of the following issues:
Besides local issues as District 94 Representative, I will fight ferociously to advance Louisiana on all fronts to lift us from the bottom of all the life quality indexes, including being the worst state in the union for women to live. These issues include:
We have seen threats to our democracy across the country which we must combat on all levels, federal, state and local! We must and, as District 94 Representative, I will relentlessly pursue the preservation of our democracy by taking on these challenging issues:
