On Monday, October 28th LEDC founding board member Jeff David passed away. Mr. David was well known for his ownership and management of the Livingston Parish News newspaper, a family run business established in the late 1800’s. An attorney by training, he chaired the LEDC board and also served on the Baton Rouge Area Chamber Board, as part of his public service. Those who worked closely with him considered him a visionary with a firm grasp on those things important to Livingston Parish. He will, truly, be missed; but, we will all benefit from his contributions to the fiber of our community.
