Griffin announces candidacy for re-election to Port Commission, Seat F


I, Larry Griffin, am announcing my candidacy for re-election to Seat F of the Greater Lafourche Port Commission.

Port Fourchon has seen great progress since I was elected in 1992. The Port’s lease revenues have increased from $2 million to $20 million and we have doubled the size of the port with new development.

We purchased the South Lafourche Airport and made it into a thriving local transportation hub that services the offshore industry, and we have worked hard to make our waterways and environment a safe place to work and play.

Since being elected to the GLPC board, I have served as Vice President for two terms and as President for six years. I am now Chairman of the Construction and Development Committee and a member of the board’s Executive Committee. I am retired and able to devote my time to serving as a Port Commissioner.

My plan is to continue to work hard for the growth of the port and for you, the people of the 10th Ward.

So again, I ask you to consider me, Larry Griffin, for Seat F of the Greater Lafourche Port Commission in the upcoming November 2018 election.

Thank you and God bless.
