Parish hires governmental relations and public affairs firm

Mathews, LA – With Lafourche Parish Council approval, Lafourche Parish Government (LPG) retained the services of Top Drawer Strategies, LLC of Baton Rouge on Thursday afternoon.

The principal of the firm is Mary Patricia Wray. Her background includes serving as Communications Director for the John Bel Edwards for Governor campaign and she will represent the parish before the Louisiana Legislature and various state agencies during the upcoming special and regular sessions.

“Lafourche Parish will face some significant issues in Baton Rouge in the coming months and I felt we needed full time representation in order that our voice is heard before policymakers and legislators,” Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle said.

Wray will be in close contact with parish administration officials in the coming days and weeks to formulate a plan on how to best address the upcoming issues facing the parish in Baton Rouge.
