Howard University’s Chris Tyson is running for Louisiana Secretary of State


About Chris Tyson

I’m a proud Louisianian born and raised in Baton Rouge. My amazing wife, Gia, and I are blessed to be raising our three young children here. My parents, the late Judge Ralph E. Tyson and Patricia, taught me the value of hard work and education. Because of them I graduated from Howard University, the Harvard Kennedy School and Georgetown Law. I’m now an LSU law professor.

I’ve been a small business owner and learned firsthand how difficult it is to make payroll week in and week out. Because of my experience starting and running a company I became very passionate about making Louisiana a pro-business environment that every good company in America would love to call home. I also had the opportunity to work for the people of Louisiana in Senator Mary Landrieu’s office, a position I began the day after Hurricane Katrina struck Louisiana and the gulf coast. I’ve been a prison educator and for more than 20 years I’ve been a youth mentor. I belong to Star Hill Church where my family worships under the direction of Pastor Raymond Jetson.

I believe together we can build a better Louisiana. My educational, work and personal experiences make me uniquely qualified to serve as our next Secretary of State.
