Helena Moreno began her career in New Orleans as an award-winning investigative reporter for NBC affiliate, WDSU-TV. She was part of a team awarded an Emmy for outstanding coverage during Hurricane Katrina. Too often, however, her reports turned up political corruption and cronyism in local and state government. In 2008, she decided to not just report, but do something about it. Setting aside her promising broadcast career, Helena entered public service.
In May of 2010, she was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives. As the voice of District 93, she now serves as an advocate for a richly diverse area that includes neighborhoods such as Treme, the Garden District, Central City, St. Roch, the French Quarter, Mid City and the CBD. Ragusa helps the Moreno campaign with messaging and manages the flow of information published to its website.
Helena Moreno is a Louisiana State Senator representing District 93.
