Blake John Miguez (born November 1981)[1] is a Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives from Iberia and Vermilion parishes. He won a special election on February 21, 2015, to succeed Simone B. Champagne, who resigned to become the chief administrative officer for the city of Youngsville in Lafayette Parish.

Miguez, the president and CEO of SeaTran Marine, defeated fellow Republican John Robert Bering (born March 1959) of Jeanerette in Iberia Parish, a United States Army veteran who works as a helicopter pilot servicing the Gulf of Mexico.[2]

Miguez resides in New Iberia, Louisiana. He is an Executive in the Oil & Gas industry and a corporate attorney licensed in the State of Louisiana.

Miguez started shooting with his father at a local range at an early age. He started at USPSA and the International Practical Shooting Confederation when he was twelve years old. He started practicing with a Beretta 92F and became a Grand Master at the age of seventeen.[3]
