About Ike Leggett
From his roots in the hardscrabble poverty of then-segregated Louisiana,
Ike Leggett has built a record of public service marked by conviction
to principle, leadership, and a willingness to take on tough fights and make hard choices.
In 2006, Leggett won the Democratic Party primary for County Executive by 61 percent of the vote. Then, in November of that same year, he was
elected the First African American County
Executive, winning more than 67 percent of the ballots cast in a three-way race. In 2010, Leggett was unopposed for the Democratic Party nomination and was reelected County Executive with over 65 percent of the vote.
