Douglas grew up hunting, fishing and working on his family’s rice, soybean and crawfish farm. The Brown family is strong in their Catholic faith, their patriotism and helping their fellow neighbors.

September 11, 2001, was a day that no one old enough to remember will soon forget, but for Douglas Brown in Cheneyville, Louisiana, that day altered the course of his future. He felt a patriotic tug at his heart while he watched the day unfold with the rest of America. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17. By the time Douglas reached 19, he was deployed with a Combat Sniper Battalion to Iraq. His first deployment, brought some of the costliest battles in the war. He was wounded in the Battle of Najaf, and was awarded a Purple Heart. Douglas Brown received four more deployment orders: three more to Iraq, and one to Afghanistan. Special Operations Capable Sniper United States Marine Corps Sergeant Douglas Brown, after five deployments and ten years of service to the United States more times over the course of ten years, medically retired due to wounds received in combat.
Agriculture has been a staple in the United State’s and Louisiana’s economy since the founding of our nation and this great state. Agriculture and farming was such a vital cornerstone of the foundation forming this nation that twenty-one of the thirty-nine signers of the Constitution of the United States, were involved in agriculture. Douglas Brown and the Brown family take great pride in being Louisiana farmers. As a rice, soybean and crawfish farmer in Cheneyville, Douglas became very aware of the problems facing Louisiana Senate District 31. He began to realize that high taxes, stiff regulations and unemployment rates were plaguing the parishes (Rapides, Sabine, Natchitoches, Grant, Red River and Winn) in District 31.
After much prayer and careful thought, Douglas Brown announced his candidacy for Louisiana Senate District 31. Douglas decided that the leadership skills he acquired in the Marine Corps, the common sense solutions and hard work needed for agriculture, were just a few of the missing links in the chain from Baton Rouge to Senate District 31. He is looking forward to meeting and talking to every person in this large district about their cares and concerns of the future of District 31. He and his team strongly believe that the voice of the people, and the vote of the people, can and will turn the tide of the future of the State of Louisiana. He will not sit down on any issues. He will stand and fight for the moral, ethical, economical, educational and constitutional principles that he and the residents of this great district hold so dear. Volunteers and support will be needed for this grassroots campaign. If you would like to volunteer to help bring change to your parish and district, email Douglas and his team, and let’s do this together! Our VOICE, Our VOTE, Our FUTURE!
