District 36 State Senator Ryan Gatti is the Professional Fire Fighters Association of Louisiana’s (PFFALA) 2018 Legislator of the Year. He was recognized for his continuous contributions to firefighters across the state at the organization’s 73rd Annual Convention on February 9, 2019. “Senator Gatti takes a no-nonsense approach in representing his constituents as well as all first responders throughout the State of Louisiana,” said PFFALA President Chad Major. “He listens intently to our concerns, and although he is a very intelligent person, he allows good common sense to prevail. He is not only a compassionate man of God but also a fighter for firefighters. It is our honor to recognize him for his efforts and it is our privilege to call him friend and brother!”
