This morning, Gerod Stevens of WBOK had listeners call in about neighborhood issues. During the show Mr. Stevens announced that FSJNA dot ORG is a source for community information.
Many thanks to our Faubourg St. John neighbor WBOK for mentioning FSJNA dot ORG on the air.
New Orleans District A Councilperson Susan Guidry called in shortly after to discuss the redistricting plan. Tomorrow night at Dillard University at 6 pm there will be a public forum about the new redistricting plan.
Meeting on redistricting at Dillard University Thursday
Councilmember Susan G. Guidry requests that you notify neighbors and friends that there is a Joint Legislative Committee of the Louisiana Legislature meeting on redistricting at Dillard University, Professional Schools and Sciences Building, Georges Auditorium (Room 115), 2601 Gentilly Blvd., New Orleans, LA. The meeting will be held on this Thursday, February 17, 2011 at 6:00 P.M.
The Louisiana Legislature will convene in different areas of the state to discuss changes in boundaries for state house and senate districts, Congressional districts, school, and judicial districts statewide, before instituting new boundaries.
The New Orleans City Council is also required by law to redraw the boundaries of the five Council districts to reflect changes in population since 2001. In order to ensure that the District A office has the most accurate information about our neighborhoods, please email a brief description of the boundaries of your neighborhood organizations, so that your description can be compared with information we have on record. In some cases, these may be legal boundaries from organization by-laws, or they may simply be traditional social and cultural boundaries.
Thank you for your attention to these very important matters.
