Port Fourchon Director Chiasson Appointed To Coastal Advisory Commission

Chett Chiasson, executive director of the Greater Lafourche Port Commission, has been appointed by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards to the Governor's Advisory Commission on Coastal Protection, Restoration and Conservation. Mr. Chiasson will serve as a representative of ports and related industries through February 2020.

The Governor's Advisory Commission advises and makes recommendations to the governor on coastal activities relative to the overall status and direction of the state's coastal protection program and reviews matters which affect coastal protection.

The mission of the Coastal Advisory Commission on Coastal Protection, Restoration, and Conservation includes but is not limited to assisting the State of Louisiana in the development and implementation of a holistic plan to achieve a sustainable coastal ecosystem, encompassing the entirety of Louisiana's fragile coast from the Pearl River to the Sabine River, all predicated upon uncompromising engineering, scientific and ecological principles.

Mr. Chiasson is one of several gubernatorial appointees and state legislators who make up the commission.
