A remembrance of Sen. Edgar G. Mouton

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE, La. -

Former Governor Kathleen Blanco and others paid tribute to the late State Senator Edgar "Sonny" Mouton during an event on UL's campus.

Senator Mouton, who died last year, was instrumental in the construction of Cajun Field and the Cajundome and helped establish the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana, also known as CODOFIL.

"He was a man who loved to laugh and tease. He was a prankster. He was smart as the dickens. He had so much courage. He was never a do-nothing legislator. He was in it for all the right reasons and all the way," said Former Gov. Blanco.
