Thomas Hooks - City District 4

City District 4 - Thomas Hooks

Thomas Hooks is newly-elected for his first term representing Lafayette City Council District 4. He was born in Opelousas, Louisiana and, except for when he and his wife were in graduate school, he has otherwise lived in Lafayette for nearly 20 years. Councilman Hooks and his wife, Sarah, share five (5) children. Professionally, he works as an in-house attorney for industrial services and building materials companies with a total of 12 years of experience in the practice of law. Councilman Hooks is a graduate of University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a degree in finance, as well as a graduate of the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University. His proudest accomplishment is described as “a work in-progress,” which specifically consists of raising children who love to learn and have hearts of service. Councilman Hooks was inspired to pursue a life of public service by the principle of subsidiarity – that local citizens should be empowered to address local issues, taking into consideration the best interests of their community. He believes that local government is an important institution that can help make this principle a reality.
