Guidry is a life-long Republican and currently serving his second term as Terrebonne Parish Councilman after his election in 2015 and re-election in 2019. He also served as Parish Council Chairman for previous two years (2021 & 2022), filling in for the Parish President during his absence.


Prior to being elected Councilman, Darrin Guidry served as Parish President Michel Claudet's appointment to the Terrebonne Levee and Conservation District Board of Commissioners, where he served for 8 years. Guidry was instrumental in working with fellow commissioners to set in motion the most aggressive levee construction project in the region’s history, a project built with limited federal funding.


Flood protection is not a sprint, but a marathon. The next Parish President will need to build upon what we have accomplished so far, while focusing on the other needs of Terrebonne Parish.

While serving as the Chamber of Commerce’s appointment to the Terrebonne Economic Development Authority (TEDA) from 2006-2012 Guidry worked together with fellow board members to help create and retain thousands of jobs in Terrebonne Parish. As Parish President, he plans to work closely with TEDA to repeat this success.


Guidry was station manager of KCIL/KJIN radio stations from 1989-92. His leadership during Hurricane Andrew resulted in KCIL being the only radio station in the Tri-Parish area to remain on the air before, during and after the storm, broadcasting vital information to the sheltered and shut-in residents of Terrebonne Parish.

He later went on to manage KHOM radio station until 1997 when he and his wife founded the weekly Tri-Parish Times and the monthly Gumbo Entertainment Guide. In 2014, the couple sold its publishing business, and today they own and operate a successful real estate investment company.


How can I Help You?

Throughout my career I was blessed to serve listeners in the radio business, readers in the newspaper business and voters as a two-term Councilman. As Parish President I will use this experience to serve you.
