On August 29, 2012, for the first time in most residents’ lifetime, nearly 7,000 homes in LaPlace, Louisiana flooded.  Without any warning whatsoever, water from Hurricane Isaac's storm surge rushed into about 7,000 homes requiring an unprecedented rescue by boat. Even if there was a warning, residents would not have been able to escape because evacuation routes were under water.

Storm surge from Lake Pontchartrain pushed across Interstate 10 making it impassable as an escape route away from LaPlace and obstructing emergency responders from entering LaPlace. 

The devastation of nearly 7,000 homes and residents’ lives could have been avoided!  In 1971(over forty years ago), Congress authorized a study for flood protection for LaPlace and the west shore of Lake Pontchartrain. 

Our Levee Project has been approved for months! It's now up to Congress to fund the project and protect our homes.  AS OF TODAY, OUR LEVEE HAS NOT BEEN FUNDED by Congress!


INSTEAD OF PUSHING FOR FUNDING OUR LEVEE, GARRET GRAVES HAS SPENT HIS TIME IN CONGRESS VOTING TO CREATE NEAR $1 TRILLION IN DEBT! SEE DOCUMENTED FACTS: GravesIsNotForYou.com

 

As a resident and business owner in LaPlace (RE/MAX Best), you can count on me to fight for funding to FINALLY build our levee to protect our homes!
