Ascension Parish Sheriff Bobby Webre named Tony Burton as Honorary Sheriff for the month of August. "Tony is a truly selfless individual. He is the model of service to those in our community most in need: the sick, the injured, those struggling with addiction and despair," said Sheriff Webre. "Ascension Parish is a better place because of Tony Burton." Tony works in the insurance and financial services industry. He is a volunteer instructor in religious education to high school students. In 2019, he began organizing and hosting "Cruisin 4 Causes," a car show/cruise every third Saturday of the month at Cabela's in Gonzales where money is raised for various worthy causes.
