CANTRELLE NAMED TO COASTAL PROTECTION AND

RESTORATION AUTHORITY (CPRA) BOARD

 

Mathews, LA –   Lafourche Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle has been appointed by Governor John Bel Edwards to the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) board. The CPRA was established to serve as the main state entity for implementation of coastal restoration projects in Louisiana.  The board oversees the Coastal Protection and Restoration Trust Fund as well as serving as a main entity for compliance with the state coastal master plan. 

“I am honored to be chosen by the governor to serve on this important board.  With Lafourche Parish serving as virtually “ground zero” in the fight against coastal erosion and for coastal restoration, I believe I can bring a unique perspective to the board and to the challenge this important issue brings. I look forward to working with all the other board members and with the governor’s office and other state agencies to win this battle, “Cantrelle said.

Cantrelle will serve as a representative of the area east of the Atchafalaya River.
