Jared Christopher Brossett (born October 1982) is an African-American Democratic member of the New Orleans City Council. He was elected to the District D seat on the council in 2014 to fill the seat vacated by Cynthia Hedge-Morrell, who was term-limited and ran instead unsuccessfully for one of the two at-large council seats.
Formerly from 2009 to 2014, Brossett was a member of the Louisiana House of Representatives for District 97 in Orleans Parish, Louisiana. He won a special election to the seat on May 2, 2009, to replace Jean-Paul Morrell, another African-American Democrat who was instead elected to the District 3 seat in the Louisiana State Senate. Morrell is the son of Cynthia Hedge-Morrell and Arthur A. Morrell, the clerk of the New Orleans Criminal Court and the District 97 state representative prior to Jean Paul Morrell.
Brossett is the son of Brenda M. Brossett and Elery Michael Brossett. He graduated from McDonogh 35 Senior High School in New Orleans, Brossett holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from historically black Xavier University of Louisiana. He is a member of the Orleans Parish Democratic Executive Committee.
Brossett was succeeded in the House by another African-American Democrat, Joseph Bouie, Jr., a retired professor and administrator at Southern University at New Orleans. Coincidentally, Bouie had run unsuccessfully against Brossett for the city council just a few months earlier. In the council race, Brossett polled 8,712 votes (50.2 percent) to Bouie's 7,238 votes (41.7 percent). A third Democrat, Dalton R. Savwoir, Jr., held the remaining 1,414 ballots (8.1 percent). No one filed against Bouie in the special election for the District 97 House seat.
