Former state Sen. Walter Boasso is the new executive director of the
Plaquemines Parish Port, Harbor and Terminal District.

waterways are the most important thing we have," he said.
Boasso said his focus would be on building a port facility in Plaquemines
Boasso, 48, recently sold his shipping container company for $60 million. He
ran for governor last year, coming in a distant second to Bobby Jindal in
