Eliot S. Barron, Candidate for the 5th Louisiana district of the United States House of Representatives, is a political outsider running with a fresh alternative to the Democratic and Republican status quo, the Green Party.
Mr. Barron is a native son of Louisiana, an ARMY veteran, and more. As a man of the people, he's been a soldier medic, a fisherman, a spiritual leader, a server, tutor, streetcar and bicycle mechanic, salesman, and a realtor. In high school, he laid the groundwork for a future in public office by being elected Mayor of Webster, sister city to Ouachita, in a mock parish named for Terrebonne Bay. He then returned to Louisiana Boys State, hosted by the American Legion, to serve as a counselor to the next wave of civic-minded youth. After graduating from Lewis and Clark College in Oregon, Mr. Barron made his way around and across the country, living in Virginia, Georgia, Washington, Alaska, and Wisconsin.
Mr. Barron is passionate about the great state of Louisiana and is an avid outdoorsman, spending as much time outside as possible. His motto is “Let's Go!” and with your support, he'll put people before politics and represent Louisiana in congress.
