On the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we remember the images and videos – the families displaced; the homes and businesses destroyed, and the lives that were forever changed in Katrina’s wake. Louisianans came together after that storm and began rebuilding our communities, churches, schools, and industry.
We breathed life back into New Orleans, and the city and our state are once again flourishing.
In my community of Plaquemines Parish, more than 80% of housing units were damaged or destroyed. I was elected Plaquemines Parish President in 2006, a little more than a year after Hurricane Katrina.
After taking office, I rolled up my sleeves and continued the work to restore our community and the Gulf Coast. I did everything in my power to protect the people of the Gulf Coast, our communities, and our culture and industry.
This anniversary is a reminder that we must all rededicate ourselves to ensuring Louisiana’s future is prosperous by getting involved in your local community. Attend community events; help out our local charities and nonprofit organization; and contribute to our vibrant and thriving culture.
My campaign for Lt. Governor is driven by my commitment to the people of Louisiana and to the future of our great state.
