Local Innovators Contemplate Past Efforts, Look Forward
Community Leaders’ visions include citizen involvement, downtown development
One Acadiana Vice President of Governmental Affairs & Communications Anita Begnaud said 2017, like all years, was filled with challenges and opportunities but was a year of growth.
“As I reflect on the year, I am reminded of a number of times our community came together to make the lives of our families, neighbors, friends, and colleagues better and brighter. From continued recovery from flooding experienced in August 2016 and again in 2017, a valiant attempt to raise revenue for permanent classrooms for students in public schools across Lafayette Parish, game-changing investment in our quality of life through Moncus Park and efforts like the CREATE initiative, to recruiting another talented and passionate professional to Acadiana to lead our economic development and business advocacy efforts, I am proud to be a part of such a resilient and forward-thinking community.”
