State Senator, President Pro Tempore
Louisiana State Senate District 15
Sharon Weston Broome’s role as a public servant has spanned over two decades. On September 8, 2011 she was re-elected to her third term to the Louisiana State Senate without opposition. Senator Broome served in the Louisiana House of Representatives (District 29) for 12 years and was the first female elected as Speaker Pro Tempore of the Louisiana House of Representatives. Senator Broome’s advocacy for issues surrounding children and families is reflected in a number of bills she has authored, including The Children’s Trust Fund Bill, Saturday Academy Program and Kinship Care Subsidy Program—just to name a few.
