Delta Regional Authority Nomination

I am proud to see that President Obama has nominated Mr. Masingill as Co-Chair of the Delta Regional Authority. The residents of the 252 counties and parishes that make up the region are of great importance to me, and I cannot think of a better individual to serve their needs than Chris Masingill. He understands the ins and outs of operating between local, state, and federal agencies better than anyone I know, and how critical it is to making this program work efficiently and effectively. His experience reflects his deep passion for improving the quality of life in the region, and that enthasiasm is what drives the relationsships amongst the many groups and states involved in making this program successful.

I wish Chris only the best in his new role and am confident about the progess the Delta Regional Authority will see on his watch.
