Robert Debate seeking election to Sorrento Town Council

Robert Debate

I am a native and resident of Sorrento and married to Madeline Mayers DeBate of Baton Rouge. We have three children. I am retired from Motiva (now Shell refinery) since 1997.

Sorrento is uniquely poised for growth with its four lanes of highway, interstate and a boulevard, as well as an abundance of property for commercial, residential, and recreational development.  I would like to contribute to and be a part of the growth of Sorrento.

I have attended Sorrento Town meeting for many years voicing my concerns. I was appointed to Sorrento Town Council in February 2019.

Committees I am on:

  • Keep Ascension Beautiful
  • Sorrento Recreation
  • Major drainage, Conway Bayou basin
  • Landfill odor abatement

Visit our web site at and make an effort to attend a town meeting, get involved. Together we will move our town forward!

I would appreciate your consideration on Election Day, October 12.  Early voting is September 28-October 12.

Call me at 675-5579 to discuss any issues or concerns.
