Billy Nungesser was the President of Plaquemines Parish five years ago when the BP oil disaster happened. Nungesser’s constituency of around 23,000 residents were some of the hardest hit along the Gulf Coast.
For months after the disaster, Nungesser was a constant presence on national television, taking on both industry and government officials over their handling of the spill and cleanup.
Former Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser, who was front and center during the aftermath of the tragedy, is still calling for a sense of urgency when it comes to coastal restoration.
“I hope that we can, in the very near future, see all the claims paid and the state get the money and build back this coast. God help us if we don’t use that money the right way and save this coast,” Nungesser told WGNO.
