Council District 6 Donna Collins-Lewis

As a member of the Metro Council, Donna’s mission is to assure representation for all District 6 constituents, and to work with the Mayor and her colleagues to assure that Baton Rouge truly becomes one of America’s next great cities.

Donna’s main focus for the next four years will be on what she calls the B.I.C. plan: Blight Elimination, Infrastructure Improvement and Code Enforcement. She believes continued oversight in these three areas will greatly improve the overall view of District 6 and the parish as a whole.
