Our SW La. businesses need help right now

Posted by: George Swift on Sunday, September 27, 2020

Without help, a lot of our valuable businesses will close. Not only do these businesses provide goods and services for us, they employ a lot of our friends and neighbors. Local governments also benefit from badly need sales and property tax to offset the unexpected expenses incurred from Laura.

Our five-parish region of Southwest Louisiana has been severely impacted by the triple threat of COVID-19, Hurricane Laura with more hurricanes possible, and the election-year economy.

Just remember this. The fighting entrepreneurial spirit of Southwest Louisiana helped build the ship channel. We have survived several Hurricanes including Audrey, Rita, Ike, and Gustav. We are called to rebuild again.

Just remember this. The fighting entrepreneurial spirit of Southwest Louisiana helped build the ship channel. We have survived several Hurricanes including Audrey, Rita, Ike, and Gustav. We are called to rebuild again. Cameron now has Cheniere LNG, Cameron LNG, and Venture Global LNG under construction. For the most part, the government buildings in Cameron survived, so they have a foundation to build on, unlike before. Likewise in Calcasieu Parish, we have over 20 industrial facilities which are or will be operating soon, and many other resources to draw upon.
 
Yes, we have been knocked down like never before, but our spirit and dedication will see us through.
 
If we are work together we will Rebuild SWLA , better and stronger than before.
