Text SHARON to 20406


State of Louisiana in red


“My faith and my family are the two most important influences in my life. They give me purpose and direction and serve as my source of strength in the face of challenges. The people of Louisiana need a leader who shares their values and principles and is not afraid to defend their rights and freedoms. My record, my resume and my reputation speak for themselves. I am the only candidate who has proven that on the things that matter, I stand with the people of Louisiana.” – Sharon Hewitt


Defend the 2nd Amendment

I support the Second Amendment and the constitutional right of citizens to carry a concealed gun without a permit.

Promote family values

As Governor, I will continue to support and provide more funding for adoption, foster care, domestic abuse prevention, maternal health, and mental health programs.

Protect the unborn

I will protect the Unborn Child Heartbeat Protection Act passed by the Legislature in 2022 and will defend Louisiana’s pro-life laws.

Protect our senior citizens

Our seniors have not received the services and support that they need and deserve.  I will move the Office of Elderly Affairs as a stand-alone agency to ensure that they receive the funding and staff required to address the needs of our aging community.  In addition, I will fund and develop better home and community based services that will allow more seniors to age at home, if they so choose, while supporting traditional nursing homes for those who choose or need more specialized care.

Support our citizens with disabilities

The citizens with disabilities and their caregivers have stolen my heart as they have shared their stories over these last eight years in the legislature.  I will continue to increase pay for providers and direct-support professionals to address the workforce shortfalls, in addition to creating more programs to train and certify additional healthcare professionals.

Lead a principle-centered administration

In the words of Stephen Covey, the author of the “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People,” whom I had the opportunity to train with, great leaders “begin with the end in mind.”  I am beginning this journey to be your next Governor with one end in mind:  To give families in Louisiana reasons to STAY in Louisiana, rather than reasons to leave.  And I will do this by building a strong team of principle-centered leaders who are as committed to driving bold policy reforms as I am.
