1st Congressional District - Democrat
“I am ‘Vinny’ Mendoza, an organic farmer and retired U.S. Air Force Non-commissioned officer, and a citizen candidate for U.S. Congress in Louisiana’s 1st District. I am not a professional politician – but a citizen committed to representing the people of this district and their interests.
The people of Louisiana’s 1st District face serious challenges:
Increasing vulnerability to storms, such as Hurricane Isaac, from coastal land loss
Ongoing recovery from the BP Oil Disaster in 2010 and its effects on natural resources and the health of coastal residents
Recovery from the economic crash of 2007-2008: meeting the need for sustainable jobs and industries for the future.
