Nic Hunter

I am running for the office of Mayor of Lake Charles, Louisiana


My goals for Lake Charles will help our city to continue our growth together.


I have served Lake Charles as an elected official and as a small business man.


Follow along during my campaign as I reach out to the community and lead.


Lakefront Development

One of our many natural treasures is the Lake Charles lakefront, one of the most beautiful lakes along the Gulf Coast. WE WILL TURN DIRT ON THE LAKEFRONT DURING MY TERM AS MAYOR.

Taxes & Budget

Lake Charles has one of the highest sales tax rates in the nation – this hurts taxpayers and local businesses. It is the responsibility of the mayor’s office to focus on fiscal leanness & accountability.


A commitment to infrastructure is a commitment to the future and economic growth of Lake Charles. Through better prioritization of our budget, we can focus on critical infrastructure needs like drainage, roads, water, and sewerage.


Large scale capital improvements projects combined with better utilization of green spaces will have an impact on our drainage crisis. Green spaces achieve multiple goals as they are aesthetically pleasing and serve a multitude of public-use purposes.


Lake Charles is experiencing one of the largest economic booms in the entire state. This unprecedented growth calls for a focus on a master plan that not only considers today and tomorrow, but 10 years from now.

Curbside Recycling

Under my administration, we will allow citizens to participate in a curbside recycling program. There will be a cost, but it will only be incurred by those who participate in the program.

Commitment to Fire Protection & Law Enforcement

With a growing population and economy, we must ensure that our people and assets are always protected. One way to ensure quality and responsible help from our fire protection and law enforcement professionals is to pay them well.


A life-long resident of Lake Charles and small business owner, Nic was elected to the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury in 2011 and is currently in his second term of serving the people of District Five – the City of Lake Charles and portions of Ward 3.

Early in life Nic acquired his work ethic by bussing tables and washing dishes at his grandparents’ restaurant, Harlequin Steaks & Seafood, which they opened in 1956. With his grandmother’s blessing, he began running the restaurant full time at the age of 17.
