BATON ROUGE – Charlotte McDaniel McGehee, a Baton Rouge attorney with a practice in employment litigation and family law, today announced her candidacy in the race for Louisiana’s Commissioner of Insurance. An energetic and committed Democrat, McGehee made her announcement during an in-studio appearance on “The Jim Engster Show,” where she took questions about her hopes for the race and her thoughts on the position.
If elected, Mrs. McGehee would be the first woman in our state’s history to serve as commissioner of insurance. A graduate of Ascension Catholic High School and Southeastern Louisiana University, she studied law at the Southern University Law Center. She has been a practicing attorney since 1999, practicing in Jonesboro for her first year after passing the bar before returning home to Baton Rouge. As Louisiana’s Commissioner of Insurance, she will bring her many years of experience fighting for Louisiana families to bear in the service of state taxpayers.
“Louisiana families deserve a Commissioner of Insurance who will work for them to put Louisiana first, and get our state back to basics,” Mrs. McGehee said. “I’ve been a business owner and an entrepreneur, and a working mother to three young children. I know the challenges our families face, and I’m committed to fighting for them every day.”
Charlotte McDaniel McGehee lives in Ascension Parish with her husband, Troy, and their three children. She is a member of the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, where she is an active mentor in the youth ministry program in addition to her work in private practice as an attorney.
