MEET BLAKE MIGUEZ
An Accomplished Conservative Leader Fighting for Our Community
Raised near the tranquil Loreauville area, right on the St. Martin parish line, Blake has always felt a profound connection to his community along the Bayou Teche. This bond drove his life from the days he spent as an Eagle Scout, throughout his educational journey at the local Catholic High School and later at Louisiana State University and Southern Law School. Today, residing in New Iberia, that commitment extends into his successful career spanning both the public and private sectors.
Blake is a dedicated husband and father, a steward of family and faith. Together with his wife, Ashley, a devoted special needs teacher, they foster a home grounded in empathy and service to others. His family business, deeply rooted in the local community, has allowed him to understand firsthand the challenges and opportunities facing our small businesses and industries.
As a World Champion competitive pistol shooter, a feat that landed him a recurring role on the History Channel’s Top Shot TV series, Blake has brought honor and recognition to South Louisiana. Beyond showcasing our unique culture and resilient spirit to a national audience, Blake has leveraged his expertise in service to his community. He has offered training sessions on self-defense for women and has dedicated time to educate children on gun safety, affirming his commitment to utilize his skills for the betterment and protection of those around him.
Elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives, Blake quickly established himself as a serious Republican voice, consistently advocating for the conservative values of his district and the broader Louisiana community. His unwavering leadership and commitment to conservative principles led his peers to elect him as the Chairman of the House Republican Legislative Delegation, a group that holds a super-majority of the Louisiana House of Representatives.
During his tenure, Blake served in various committee and caucus assignments, including:
- Chairman of the Louisiana Republican Legislative Delegation
- Member of the Appropriations Committee
- Member of the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget
- Member of the Acadiana Delegation
- Member of the Louisiana Rural Caucus
- Member of the Atchafalaya Basin Program Oversight Committee
His roles have allowed him to fight for fiscal responsibility, economic growth, education reform, and constitutional rights, all while fighting for the agriculture, oil and gas, and seafood industries.
Now, as Blake sets his sights on the Louisiana State Senate, District 22, he remains resolute in his dedication to serve his community and state. His steadfast belief in the power and potential of the people of Louisiana is what fuels his fight for conservative values. Blake Miguez is more than just a proven leader — he’s a proud Louisianan, a defender of our values, and a fighter for our community.
“I am a lifelong resident of Senate District 22; I live here, I work here, I raise my family here.”
