Gov. Bobby Jindal's coastal chief, Garret Graves, is leaving state government this month.We're pretty close to parade season now and John Barry is already King of Krewe Du Vieux so it's difficult to squeeze Graves in somewhere now. (In the time it took me to type that, Rob Ryan just joined Argus.) Graves might do well in Krewe Delusion. Sounds appropriate anyway.
Graves has been chairman of the state's Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority for six years. Jindal announced Tuesday that Graves' last day will be Feb. 17.
The governor's office didn't give any reason for Graves' resignation, but praised his time leading the state's coastal restoration efforts.
