Lafourche Parish President Archie Chaisson has been appointed to serve as the Vice Chairman of the Energy Subcommittee for the Environment, Energy and Land Use Steering Committee for the National Association of Counties (NACo).
NACo was founded in 1935 and it serves 3.6 million county employees to advocate for local priorities during federal policymaking, to promote ideal practices and optimize taxpayer resources and cost-savings.
NACo works to build stronger communities by uniting local officials nationwide to strengthen American towns.
In this role, President Chaisson will be an advocate for our energy industry by emphasizing how it affects our entire nation.
Lafourche Parish energy powers millions of Americans and is a multi-billion dollar industry that provides thousands of jobs - both to our area, but also to surrounding economies.
“I would like to thank President Moore for this appointment and his confidence in me,” said President Chaisson. “As we all know, the energy industry is a vital part of our culture and our way of life. I’m proud to be able to bring Lafourche’s voice to the national stage and work on policy issues that play a key role in our ability to remain the energy corridor for our nation."
