Republican Rep. Hunter Greene qualified for the November election for a Baton Rouge family court judicial seat. This early move by a term-limited representative has prompted Baton Rouge Councilperson Buddy Amoroso to announce his candidacy for House District 66.
Amoroso is a real estate investor and has held his current council seat since 2012. He is a graduate of Broadmoor High School in Baton Rouge and holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He is married to Denise Waters Amoroso and they have two daughters, Elaine and Michal Ann, and one son, Joey, a Navy Seaman.
