I am Devin Lance Graham and I am running from the sixth congressional district seat. I am an independent candidate, not part of any of the parties.
The parties are holding our country back, fighting with each other to accomplish nothing, and if a piece of legislation actually gets near being passed the bill is loaded with items that have nothing to do with the idea of the subject issue.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

Licensed Real Estate Broker in Louisiana.
Vice Chairman of Parish of Ascension
Board of Adjustments.
Three nephews and one niece.
I believe in serving my community. I believe in helping all people that are in true need, and do not expect anything in return. I was not told that, instead I learned that lesson, the memory of my father and mother helping elderly neighbors that they never met after Hurricane Andrew visited us in Baton Rouge.
My parents are the fabric of this nation, they are the young couple who got married at a young age and raised three boys while both working jobs that they were proud to work. They packed up everything that they could fit into one car with my oldest brother and left Washington Parish in 1980 to come to Baton Rouge, find work and start a new life. Showing us boys that no matter the job title, work hard and be proud of your work. Their story alone provides many examples of how to live life.
My father works everyday, my mother now handles the task being a grandmother. My oldest brother, Christopher, is resident of Prairieville and the middle brother, Daniel, serves in the Air Force and is a resident of Gonzales. No matter the hurdles that have been thrown in our paths, we manage to still be a connected family. The core of our life is knowing that no matter the things that happen, good or bad, we can always call on each other for a hand or at least an ear.
I am a resident of Prairieville, have been leaving here since the age of 7. Graduated from Dutchtown High School. I am a Louisiana licensed real estate broker, working with many of the residents, businesses, and investors in the region. On top of being a broker, I own and operate Zydeco Electric LLC, working in the homes and businesses all over the region. Growing small business ideas into a businesses that grows everyday, working with many of clients in real estate and wiring 100's of new homes.
I also have the honor of being the vice chairman of the Parish of Ascension Board of Adjustments. Volunteering since August 2014 and voted to be vice chairman in 2015, I am and have been happy to serve my parish and my neighbors. Serving the community is important. Having that ability and time can be difficult, but if possible always give back to the neighborhood, community, and parish.
