Panelist Bio

Sen. Norbert Chabert

Senator Norby Chabert was born and raised on Bayou Petite Caillou. He is a proud graduate of South Terrebonne High School and received his Bachelor of Arts from Nicholls State University focusing his studies on Government and History.

Norby began his governmental service as an aid and adviser to both Republican and Democrat federal, state, and local officials across Louisiana. Following a successful career in political consulting, he returned home to his alma mater joining the presidents administration at Nicholls as associate director of marketing and development for the University.

In 2009 he resigned that position to enter a special election for an open state Senate seat that was once held by both his father Leonard and brother Marty. In August of that year he won the election and served in the Senate for two years before being re-elected without opposition to a full term in 2011. His district is comprised of most areas of the Houma-Thibodaux region, and all of the coast of Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes.

As a member of the Louisiana Senate, Norby currently serves as Vice-Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and is a member of the Commerce, Consumer Protection and International Affairs Committee, the Judiciary B Committee, the Natural Resources Committee, and the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget. In addition, Senator Chabert is Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Vocational and Technical Education and also serves on the Senate Select Committee on Coastal Restoration and Flood Control.

In his private life Norby is a small business owner with interest ranging from Hospitality and Service, Real Estate Development, and the Oil and Gas Industry. He currently lives in Downtown Houma and is an active member of his community.

Current Topic

     11/17 - Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?
For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.

Louisiana Public Square explores some of the challenges that the state’s hunters and anglers face on “Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?” Wednesday, November 22 at 7p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, November 21)
