In front of an audience that topped 500 at Nicholls State University, all four candidates for governor laid out their plans for coastal restoration. The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana Coastal Issues Forum was the first ever governor’s forum dedicated strictly to discussing coastal issues. It highlighted the fact that Louisiana is facing a land loss crisis that will require bold, science-based action by our next governor.
“The next Louisiana Governor has an unprecedented opportunity – and responsibility - to address the land loss crisis that threatens the very future of our state. Tonight we heard from all four candidates that they understand the importance of taking bold actions to save our coast,” said Kimberly Davis Reyher, CRCL’s Executive Director. “But to do that its going take unprecedented leadership, coordination, and political resolve.”
