Paul Bilyeu is a Libertarian from Houston, Texas. He served 3 consecutive terms from 2018-2024 on the Harris County Libertarian Party Executive Committee. He is the former Vice Chair and Treasurer. Paul is also the Systems Administrator for the Libertarian Party of Texas. Finally, he is a 2-time candidate for Texas State House of Representatives.

Paul was born and raised in Southern Illinois just across the river from St. Louis. Following high school he enlisted in the US Navy and spent almost 9 years in the service including over 3 years aboard a Trident Submarine out of Bangor Washington. During his time in the Navy he lived and worked in Orlando, Idaho Falls and Bangor.

Following his military career, he's spent the last 28 years in various positions with Milwaukee based company Allen Bradley, now Rockwell Automation. As part of his career with Rockwell, Paul took a position in Houston in 2005. Prior to that he had held positions in Nashville and Monroe Louisiana.

Having always been either independent or Republican in his political beliefs, Paul was first introduced to Libertarianism in 2013. After a great deal of thought, conversation and study, everything about being a Libertarian just made sense. And the duopoly parties did not. From that point, he has been an all in Libertarian and a Life Member of both the National Libertarian Party and the Libertarian Party of Texas.
