Aransas Pass, Texas

Hurricane Harvey

Because such a vast area was damaged by Hurricane Harvey, LeadersLink held a disaster recovery forum in October after the storm in Aransas Pass for city and county leaders from throughout the Texas Coastal Bend. ┬áThe team who led their communities through Hurricane Katrina discussed what worked and what didn’t, strategies for dealing with FEMA and insights into unexpected post-disaster challenges. ┬áParticipating were former St. Tammany Parish President Kevin Davis, former Gulfport, MS Mayor Brent Warr, former Waveland, MS Mayor Tommy Longo and former Biloxi, MS Director of Administration David Staehling.
