Official Headshot

Congressman Garret Graves is proud to represent nearly 800,000 people across south Louisiana.  The district includes the Baton Rouge capitol region, both sides of the mighty Mississippi through the river region down to New Orleans airport, then southwest through the bayou communities of Thibodaux, Houma and ending across the Atchafalaya Basin in the Morgan City area. 

Graves brings experience in infrastructure, resilience, disaster response, conservation, environmental and energy issues to the U.S. House of Representatives – and has intimate knowledge of the unique terrain of South Louisiana, where he was born and raised.

Graves chairs the Aviation Subcommittee on Transportation and serves on the Natural Resources Committee.  During his tenure, he has been recognized for his work breaking decades-old logjams, finding new solutions to old problems, and using new technology to improve the efficiency and customer service of the federal government.  Garret has been ranked one of the most effective U.S. House members and has had several bipartisan bills signed into law by three different presidents.

With his no-nonsense style, Garret has a proven record of delivering positive results for Louisiana and the nation.

He is a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he resides with his wife Carissa and their three children.
