Rep. Dalton Honoré

Dalton Honoré has been a life-long dedicated law enforcement officer in East Baton Rouge Parish. In 1965 Honore was appointed as the first African-American Deputy Sheriff in East Baton Rouge Parish. He spent approximately twelve years with the Sheriff’s Office rising to the rank of Captain and Sub-Station Commander.

Honoré left the Sheriff’s Office to start a private business, and while working at the family owned business his love for law enforcement allowed him to return to that profession as a legal investigator with the Parish Attorney’s office.

His education includes a Bachelor of Science degree at Southern University in Vocational Education. Additionally, he graduated from Louisiana State University Law Enforcement Institute and Louisiana State University Basic Law Enforcement Academy.

He is a father and grandfather. Dalton was married to the late JoEthel Honoré for 45 years. They have three children and six grandchildren. He is a member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

His community involvement includes his membership and volunteer work with the American Legion, Post 502, and Baton Rouge Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity. He continues his dedication as a member of the Southern University Century Club, Scotlandville High School Alumni Association, the Southern University 6th Man Club, and former president of the Crestworth Neighborhood Association.

In May 2010, Honoré was elected to serve as Louisiana State Representative, completing the term of deceased Rep. Avon Honey. Honoré is serving on the Administration of Criminal Justice Committee, Transportation, Highways and Public Works Committee, House Committee on Homeland Security, and Joint Committee on Homeland Security. Also he is a member of Capital Region Legislative Delegation, Democratic Caucus and Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus. Honoré was re-elected as Louisiana State Representative of District 63 on Oct. 22, 2011.

01/17 - Healthy New Year!

What is the best approach to shedding pounds in a state where cuisine is part of its culture?

PARTICIPATE BY TAKING THE SURVEY HERE!

January heralds the beginning of a New Year and for many, a resolution to practice a healthier lifestyle. According to the 13th annual State of Obesity report, Louisiana now has the highest rate of adult obesity in the country.

So, what is the best approach to shedding pounds in a state where cuisine is part of its culture? Which diet is the most effective for losing weight? What weight loss surgeries are available and how safe are they? And what role does exercise play in the health equation? Louisiana Public Square searches for answers on “Healthy New Year!” Wednesday, January 25 at 7pm on LPB HD and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, January 24)
