Businessman and Airport Commissioner, Cleve Dunn, Jr. is honored to announce his candidacy for Metro Councilman in District 6 during the upcoming November election. He is a visionary, strategic thinker, and community leader who believes he can use these skills to bring a fresh perspective in order to address the current challenges in the East Baton Rouge Parish as Donna Collins-Lewis terms out of her seat.

For years Dunn has played a significant role in managing several political campaigns for others and initiatives as well as actively being a voice for the community.  These assets are believed to aid him in being the most impactful candidate for Metro Councilman.  The people of District 6 deserve a diligent leader with a proven track record to build a better future for families and businesses; and Cleve Dunn, Jr. is that person.

Cleve Dunn, Jr. humbly asks the community for the opportunity to serve District 6 to focus on economic development strategies, such as increasing contracting opportunities for small, local, and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise firms (DBE); bringing a community center to District 6; increasing access to healthcare; a comprehensive plan to address the city's flooding and drainage issues. He believes that these key community necessities are what Baton Rouge has been missing for the past few years, and he is determined to accomplish this for District 6.

Cleve has been married to his high school sweetheart, Stacy Posey-Dunn, for 22 years and they share two beautiful daughters: Malaysia and Aniya. He graduated from Capitol High School in 1995. He attended Southern University and A&M College and received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Southern New Hampshire University.
