About Jake Halley
“I believe that government is overreaching and intruding into too many areas of our lives but there are some things we expect out of government. Strong military and law enforcement, border security, disaster and emergency support and adherence to the constitution that protects our individual rights. My work experience, in some 13 states, has taught me that you have to listen and be patient but persistent in working with local, state and federal entities to find solutions for the people they serve.” Jake Halley
Jake’s parents are Brian and Susie Halley, both of Farmerville.Brian retired as a captain from Union Parish Sheriff’s Office afterserving 30 years. He also served as Homeland Security Director. Susie, a retired nursing homes activity coordinator and social worker, is now a volunteer at Trees of Righteousness, a local nonprofit.
Jake’s uncle, Bill Halley, played Major League Baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers but decided there wasn’t enough money in sports during those years so he came home and started Halley Timber which Jake’s cousin, Kenneth Halley, currently runs. Jake’s brother Nick Halley owns and operates Halley Construction and Halley Dirt Work, servicing clients throughout northeast Louisiana.

"“For over 20 years, I’ve admired Jake’s heart to serve the people of Union and Lincoln parishes. His time spent in law enforcement and his service on the D’Arbonne Lake Commission, balanced by his deep Christian faith has made Jake a great asset to our community. During my 17 years serving with the Farmerville Fire Department, I’ve had several opportunities to work with Jake during times of disaster and relief efforts. I truly believe Jake’s professional work experience, his faith in God and his years of public service give him the best knowledge and skills to represent us well as our State Representative in Baton Rouge.”"
