Political Announcement from candidate Ricky Ardillo:
After many hours of prayer and discussions with my family, I am announcing my candidacy for Mayor of Amite. As a lifelong resident, I will come prepared and ready to go to work as your mayor.
I grew up in Amite as a member of the Ardillo’s family business and was blessed to learn the value of hard work at an early age. I attended and graduated from Amite High School which I loved and supported throughout my entire life. After graduating, I enlisted into the Army National Guard from 1994 - 2000. I feel that my love for the city and the skills I’ve learned from my career will enable me to be a great Mayor for Amite City.
As a husband and father, I want my family to be as lucky as me to grow up in such a great hometown! I’ve recently built a new house in Amite where Laura and I are currently living with two of our four children that still haven’t left the nest. I love the area, the house, and everything about it. I would like your support to ensure that our children’s childhood memories and life are not only as good as, but better than ours growing up.
