Councilwoman LeVette Fuller was born and raised in Shreveport by her father, retired Shreveport Police Lt. Everett Fuller, and her mother, Caddo Parish teacher Mary Fuller. Together they taught her the value of reading, education, and public service. She graduated from Caddo Magnet High School and then earned her B.A. from Centenary College of Louisiana.
Since 2018, Fuller has served the people of District B from Anderson Island, Caddo Heights, Downtown, Highland, South Highlands, Stoner Hill, and Queensborough on the Shreveport City Council. During her term, she has supported higher salaries for law enforcement, streamlined the permitting process for new business, and addressed blight in District B’s neighborhoods by working directly with the Department of Property Standards and dedicated local volunteers.
Before beginning her political career, Fuller worked for Shreve Memorial Library, first at the Wallette Branch and then at the Downtown Branch, before moving to the North Shreveport Branch. She served the young people of Caddo Parish as Teen Services Associate and shared her love of comics, young adult literature, and children’s books with them. Fuller views public service as a calling to work with her neighbors, especially young people, to move our city forward.
In addition to her work with local schools and community partners through the public library system, she has served on the Leadership Council for Step Forward, as well the boards of Shreveport Green and the Shreveport Historic Preservation Society. Her experience with the Shreveport Preservation Society revealed how much of Shreveport’s identity is tied to its architecture. During this time, Fuller also served on the Metropolitan Planning Commission, where her interest in architecture turned to learning about the zoning laws and other policies that shape Shreveport.
While working as a librarian, Fuller also volunteered with the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier and helped to found Re:Form Shreveport. Within Re:Form Shreveport, Fuller explored her passion for land use policy and infill development while also completing hands-on projects that improve daily life for Shreveport’s citizens. In partnership with SPAR and Shreveport Green, ReForm Shreveport revitalized Highland Park, installing new features such as a bike rack and water fountain, but also creating terraces to prevent erosion.
Fuller’s vision for Shreveport is a stronger, more adaptable city – one that learns from its past and prepares for its future. She prioritizes decisions that are based on outcomes and made with transparency, not party lines. Having lived and worked in Shreveport most of her life, she knows the people well and puts them first, always. She knows we have everything we need to thrive, and she truly believes in Shreveport.
