Troy Anthony "C" Carter (born 1963 October 26) is a former member of the New Orleans City Council.

In 1994 he was elected to represent District C on the Council, becoming the first African-American to represent that area of the Council since Reconstruction. He served until 2002, when he unsuccessfully sought the office of mayor. Carter was eliminated in the 2002 primary election by Ray Nagin (the final winner) and Richard Pennington. Carter previously represented District 102 in the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1992 to 1994. He was an unsuccessful candidate for Louisiana's 2nd congressional district seat in 2006 against then-incumbent William J. Jefferson.[1]

Carter is a graduate of Xavier University of Louisiana, where his majors were business administration and political science. He embarked on graduate studies at Carnegie-Mellon University's School of Urban and Public Affairs and has served as an instructor of political science at Xavier University of Louisiana.[2]
