One of seven children, A.G. grew up in the projects of the Ninth Ward in New Orleans, the son of a waitress and a plumber. He worked his way through high school and college and was the first in his family to attend and graduate from college with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Southeastern Louisiana University.
After many years of success, and rapidly moving up the corporate ladder working for national and international companies, A.G. and his wife Linda decided to move back home to St. Tammany Parish to raise their family.
He opened his first small business, St. Tammany Office Products in Slidell in 1982 and immersed himself in community activity and service. He served on the St. Tammany Parish School Board and took Senator John Kennedy’s lead and became a certified substitute teacher.

In 2002, A.G. founded The File Depot in Slidell, Louisiana.  In 2004, he converted it into a national company, which today has numerous locations in twelve states and is still growing. The File Depot, LLC, was the only nationally franchised records management company in the nation offering confidential records storage, retention, consulting, shredding/disposal and cloud services. After many years as CEO and President, A.G. retired in 2016 from The File Depot and sold his majority interest to his partner.  In 2017, A.G. founded Shop Local USA, a company established to support local and small businesses in Louisiana. This new web-based venture has proven to be extremely popular, with expectations to expand nationwide. Check out for more details and how it’s helping local businesses.

In 1999, A.G. ran for public office and was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives, and was reelected in 2003.  He was then elected to the State Senate in 2007 and reelected in 2011. He has served/chaired a number of Senate committees including Labor & Industrial Relations (Chairman); Commerce, Consumer Protection, and International Affairs (Vice-Chair) Environmental Quality; Retirement, Senate Select Committees; Coastal Restoration and Flood Control; and the Oversight Committee of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility.  He took the lead throughout his legislative tenure, fighting for Louisiana families and businesses.  He led the way for job-creating legislation and pushed for higher pay for our teachers.  He has the most conservative voting record when it comes to family values, taxes and protecting our most vulnerable--the unborn.

As a legislator, A.G. has received numerous awards including the prestigious Gladiator Award presented by the Louisiana Family Forum for achieving a 100% voting record for family value issues for 10 straight years.  

As State Senator, A.G. authored legislation to establish the Louisiana International Gulf Transfer Terminal (LIGTT).  A $9.2 billion project to construct a deep-water port just east of the Southwest Pass, it is projected the terminal will provide over 34,000 jobs to Louisiana residents.  As President of the Authority, A.G. is heading the effort to complete the project, which will provide a positive economic impact in 32 states along the Mississippi River and its tributaries.  The port will be instrumental in the eventual development of an all-new supply chain connecting South, Central and North America.
The first major vertical of the LIGTT Authority and its Developer to be launched will be the export of crude oil and natural gas. Since the federal government lifted the crude oil export restrictions in 2015 after almost 40 years, the demand for U.S. light, sweet crude has skyrocketed.
A.G. and Linda met at Southeastern Louisiana University and have been married for 45 years. Linda is a retired kindergarten teacher.  They have 2 children and 7 grandchildren.  Both are active in their communities with Rotary, their church, and numerous other community organizations.  Linda served as President of the Louisiana Legislative Spouses Auxiliary, President of Inner-Wheel, a Phi Mu Fraternity member, and is a life member of Junior Auxiliary.  A.G. is an ordained Deacon at First Baptist Church in Slidell.  His hobbies include family, fishing, music, horses, working the land on his tractor, and helping others in need.


Senator A.G. Crowe wrote the legislation establishing The Louisiana International Deepwater Gulf Transfer Terminal Authority, a public-private partnership port that will lead to 20,000 good, high-paying jobs for Louisianians and boost the states' economy. He has a unique history of creating jobs both as a private businessman and as a legislator.
A.G. Crowe is a man of great integrity. His love of our state, it’s people combined with his experience, dedication and leadership would make him the perfect choice as our next Secretary of State. James E. Fitzmorris, Jr. Former Lt. Governor & Louisiana Statesman
As the former coastal director for Plaquemines Parish, I worked closely with the legislature to help develop laws and fund projects to save our coast. Senator A.G. Crowe was on the forefront of this effort, always making himself easily accessible and using common sense approaches, which lead the way to some of the largest coastal projects in US history.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with A.G. in the legislature. As a businessman, he brought fresh new ideas to help grow and protect Louisiana businesses. As a dedicated Christian, he holds the record to this day for the highest voting record with the Louisiana Family Forum in support of family values over his 16 years of service. I am honored to endorse A.G. as our next Secretary of State.
“I am supporting A.G. Crowe for Secretary of State. He is "solid as a rock" in every area of his personal and professional life.”

“I have known and worked with A.G. for many years in business and community projects. Only the “Energizer Bunny” exceeds his level of energy!"
“I am happy to give my support to my former seat mate in the Louisiana House of Representatives.”

A.G. Crowe is a man who I am honored to call my friend. When he was in the Senate, I worked with him on a number of pieces of legislation. He is a principled, hard-working, sweet man with an especially close relationship with God. He has been a wonderful example and mentor to me. Please consider him for Secretary of State.
