Lafourche Parish President
Like you, I pray my great, great grandchildren (and beyond) will be born, live, work, start businesses, and raise their families here. I know my vision for Lafourche is very similar to the Lafourche you envision.
Our culture is rich with tradition and our way of life is precious. I never want to lose that. Future generations need to know what it feels like to live on the same soil their grandparents farmed, the pride of sending their children to the elementary, middle and high schools they attended and to respect the bayou that has the power to sustain us.
I want them to enjoy year-round fresh seafood, fish in their family’s “secret” fishing holes, crawfish in the ponds they crawfished in as kids, have the opportunity to work in the industry that fed their families for generations and have the chance to own a camp on Fourchon. Future generations will stay in Lafourche if they have a top-rated education system, easy access to waterways for work and recreation, healthcare second to none and an economy fueled by diverse industry.
Was I right? Doesn’t my Lafourche greatly resemble your Lafourche? Our Lafourche is possible and I will need your help creating our legacy; our gift to future generations.
