Hello and welcome to the Claitor For Louisiana State Senate District 16 website.
I am Dan Claitor. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge. I am a product of our public schools. I graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1979, that year I also registered to vote as a Republican. Four years later, I graduated from LSU.
As a youngster and college student, I was lucky enough to work in the family business, Claitor's Bookstore. There, I learned that it's tough to make a dollar and even tougher to hang on to it. My brothers and I also learned from our parents, Bob and Nancy, that the harder we worked, the luckier we got. We were very fortunate to have parents like that.
Sharmaine and I have been married for 26 years and we have raised two sons.
With no prior experience in politics, but with experience in public service as a prosecutor, I was elected to the Louisiana State Senate in 2009 at the age of 47. On October 24 of 2015, I was re-elected to a final term. I look forward to serving the people of District 16 for four more years. Thank you.
