NEW ORLEANS—State Representative Cedric Richmond has been named "40 Under 40 - Rising Stars of U.S. Politics." by TIME Magazine.
According to TIME, "In an epic election cycle, a new generation of civic leaders is already at work trying to fix a broken system -- and restore faith in the process."
"I am excited to be recognized by TIME," said Richmond. "It has been such an honor to serve the citizens of Louisiana over the past 11 years; this is proof that the power of service can change a generation."
This is the first year TIME has compiled the 40 Under 40 list. The story will be featured in the October 25, 2010 issue, on sale Friday, October 15.
Louisiana's Governor Bobby Jindal also received the honor.
