Councilman Sposito announces her candidacy for Lafourche Parish President

Lafourche Parish Council Chairwoman Luci Sposito has announced her candidacy for Lafourche Parish President in 2019.

“Lafourche Parish is rich in tradition and blessed with abundant resources and hardworking residents who deserve the opportunity to create the Lafourche we all envision,” Sposito said.

Her greatest concerns echo the concerns of Lafourche Parish residents and include coastal preservation and restoration, economic and community development, proper subdivision development, and localized flood protection.

“In speaking with thousands of people over the years, I know that we all understand that we must aggressively work to protect our coast, marshes and swamps to sustain our economy and way-of-life. We want diverse industry to fuel a thriving economy. We want our homes and businesses protected from flooding. We want our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to make Lafourche their home too.”

A resident of Chackbay for 21 years, Sposito was elected to the Lafourche Parish Council in 2015 representing District 2 and was elected Parish Council Chair in 2018. She is a graduate of Central Lafourche High School and Nicholls State University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree and Masters of Business Administration.

Sposito is also a Certified Louisiana Economic Developer and is nationally certified as a Professional and Community and Economic Developer.

She gained valuable experience in government administration and economic development as the City of Thibodaux’s Grants, Economic Development and Communications Director prior to being elected to the Council.

Sposito is married to Paul Sposito and they have two sons, Tyler and Benjamin.

“I appreciate the importance of being transparent and accountable to Lafourche Parish residents. I, along with a qualified team, will take an active role in our community, listening and learning from all of you who live, work and do business in our parish. With your support and input, we will develop and implement plans to create ‘Our Lafourche,’ the parish that future generations will call home,” said Sposito.

The primary election for Lafourche Parish President is October 12, 2019.
