A FRESH FACE WITH A NEW AND PROSPEROUS VISION FOR KENTWOOD
My name is Tre'Von Cooper, and my interest in politics began at a very young age. In Middle School, I was in the Youth Legislature's Executive Branch. In High School, I was a member of the Beta Club and then I was elected Vice President of the National Honor Society.
As for my life in the community, I was born and raised in Kentwood and for the past four years, I have been very involved in the town's affairs. When I was 15 I was invited to my first Town Council meeting and I have made it a point not to miss any since then. Later, when I was 16, I decided to give Kentwood a voice with an online platform called Kentwood Through the Lens. It was here where people could get updates and just know what's going on in town.
Since then I have been a part of different committees and projects in town, including the Kentwood Lifestyle and Cultural Committee with White Linen Night and a Christmas celebration volunteer group with fellow candidate William Lawson where we refurbished public decorations.Being an involved citizen in Kentwood, and growing up here, there were a lot of things that I wish we had and there were many issues I wish I could have played a bigger part in solving.
Kentwood has a lot of potential to be something great. We are the first thing you see coming into our state, we are the Foyer of Louisiana. And we have the opportunity not only to show travelers but to prove to ourselves what culture and personality we all possess as Louisianians
My biggest and most rewarding endeavors has to have been "Kentwood Through the Lens" Through this platform I informed the public about events, important updates and made sure that town affairs were transparent. With my reporting, I was able to meet individuals ranging from Mayors to State Senators.
As Councilman, I promise to uphold my efforts for transparency and integrity in office just as I did as a reporter.
