Candidate Bio

Green Party's veteran candidate in Louisiana this election cycle, Eliot Barron is making good on a promise to the citizens and voters of the state and nation: to be an alternative perspective on the ballot. Barron, whose civic duties have included a tour in the regular army, the census operation in 2010, numerous volunteer positions for the International Red Cross, and two prior congressional runs is intent on gaining ground where few might expect: the "safely" Republican House of Representatives.

Steeped in both American and World History, a student of current affairs, and a strong voice for justice, freedom, peace, and the environment, Barron is a thoughtful and candid person, whose approach to politics is quite timely.

A veteran of a campaign for a special election, the candidate in past years has distinguished himself in print, on television and radio, and has even recorded a podcast series in an effort to let people know that the time has come to make a clear stand.

Encouraging the politically independent to be recognized and counted, while welcoming searchers for new voices or otherwise making the Green Party a home for both the hopeful and disenchanted, Eliot aims to get many of the 20% undecided's votes.

A former medic with a U.S. Army Ranger Battalion, Barron remembers well his regimental slogan "Rangers lead the way!"

"All the way!"

Mr. Barron is passionate about the great state of Louisiana and is an avid outdoorsman, spending as much time outside as possible. With your support, he'll put people before politics and represent Louisiana earnestly and honestly in congress.

Eliot Barron, Candidate for the 1st Louisiana district of the United States House of Representatives, is a political independent running with a fresh alternative to the Democratic and Republican status quo, the Green Party.

After graduating from Lewis and Clark College in Oregon, having studied in Munich, Germany his junior year abroad, Mr. Barron enlisted and was stationed in Missouri, Texas, Virginia, Georgia, Washington and points in between; living and working also in Alaska and Wisconsin. This broad exposure to other states in the union and time in the workforce has opened all horizons.

As a realtor in today's market, Barron appreciates diverse economic realities and demographic truths.  With eyes that see and ears that hear, he would make a good representative.

Let's Go!

    Mr. Barron,

    My mother’s name was Volcie Barron. Know little about you, but as a candidate for the Green Party in Louisiana you must have courage. Generally, I find Louisiana politics dispiriting and the candidates ludicrous. You have my vote, sir. I would love to send you some of the most pointed emails I have sent to our current representatives in both houses of Congress.

    Eliot, I enjoyed watching the televised debate and hearing you voice your perspectives on social and political matters integral to our common life and our wellness as a nation. Your forthright, honest candor was refreshing and set you apart from the others.

    Congratulations in this vocational pursuit and in the channeled focus and release of this passion.


    As ever,
    Rob Goldsmith

    Mr. Barron, I appreciated hearing you speak at the 5th District Congressional Candidate Forum in West Monroe. I am eager to hear you speak again in our area.

    Glad that you’re running again Eliot! It’s wonderful to know we will get to hear alternative ideas from alternative candidates as opposed to just more of the same from the two major parties!
