Lafayette, LA -- Daniel Landry (R) announced on Thursday that he will become a candidate for the Office of Louisiana’s 15th Judicial District Attorney.

“I’ve been an Assistant District Attorney for 35 years; I’ve dedicated my life to keeping Acadiana safe. I’m determined to protect my community for years to come, that’s why I’m running,” says Landry.

Daniel Landry was born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana. He's a graduate of Lafayette High School and Louisiana State University, where he received a degree in political science and his Juris Doctorate in 1981.

Landry believes his love of community and commitment to its safety and security, along with his prosecutorial experience and leadership skills make him the right person for the job.  His top priority [if elected] is to continue to be fair and just, based on the evidence and totality of the facts, while treating all people with dignity and respect.

According to Landry, the District Attorney’s office has three responsibilities. First is protecting the public from those that violate the law; second is prosecuting criminals and, lastly, preventing crimes from occurring.
