Three Ascension Parish residents were recently reappointed to state boards and commissions, Gov. Bobby Jindal’s office announced in a news release.
William “Bill” Landry and Sheriff Jeff Wiley were reappointed the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice.
Landry, of Gonzales, is retired and was the former police chief for the Gonzales Police Department.
Wiley, also of Gonzales, serves as the chairman of the commission.
They were among a group of Louisiana residents named to the 55-member commission.
John Folse, of Gonzales, was reappointed to the state’s Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board.

The board includes 13 residents appointed by the governor “engaged in the commercial seafood, crawfish, and alligator industry in Louisiana,” and the secretary of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries or his designated representative serves as the 14th member of the board, the release says.
