Senator Cassidy has always been one of the most conscientious and diligent senators I know–from working hard to make sure he promotes policies that help Louisiana and all American families to directly responding to state legislators when our Districts need federal help. This year, the Democrats are making a serious play to retake the Senate to stop the progress President Trump has made. Stand with President Trump and our Senator, Bill Cassidy, to maintain our conservative values.”
— Rep. Julie Emerson (Carencro, LA)
Fire departments take on many critical duties in keeping the public safe day and night. Senator Cassidy has been a strong advocate for fire departments across the state and the Acadiana region, helping departments in Breaux Bridge, Arnaudville, St. Martinville, Abbeville, Cecilia, Church Point, Henderson, Rayne, Parks and Opelousas secure needed federal grants so they could acquire the gear and vehicles they need to safely perform their duties.
Improvements in infrastructure are critical for boosting safety and economic efficiency while creating jobs in the community. Cassidy helped secure funding for improvement projects at the Lafayette and Acadiana regional airports to support increased economic activity and tourism in the Acadiana region. He also helped secure grants expanding public transportation for the Acadiana area to help residents access more jobs and allow for greater participation in the local economy.
Improving Health Care for Veterans
As a physician who worked to provide care to low-income communities, Senator Cassidy recognizes the importance of providing health care to those in need. In the Acadiana region, Cassidy fought for the expansion of Lafayette’s new Community-based outpatient VA clinic. This new, expanded clinic helps ensure the VA is fulfilling its role of providing veterans with the best access to quality care.
