"I'm running for Lafayette City Marshal to be a bridge for the entire community.


I’m asking for your prayers, support & your vote."



John Trahan, Jr. - a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a retired state trooper, a democrat, a leader, and a man of God.

My name is John Trahan, Jr and I am asking for your support to become the next City Marshal of Lafayette.

I have dedicated my adult life to protecting and serving the citizens of the United States of America with a focus on Louisiana and the Greater Lafayette Community. I am a veteran of the Louisiana Army National Guard and the United States Army Reserve. I actively served in the first Gulf War - Desert Storm.


My law enforcement journey began in 1989 as a Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Deputy. While employed with the sheriff’s department I was a member of the Metro Narcotics Specialized Team.


In 1995, I joined the ranks of the Louisiana State Police where I served for 26 years.

I am a registered Democrat.
