In our role as “The People’s Paper” the alarm has been sounded as Hurricane Ida ripped through our City. In its aftermath, it presented some new challenges to us all. It’s reminded us of Katrina, something that changed our lives forever.
And while this event up to this point did not cause the damage of Katrina, in the City of New Orleans, it comes with its own set of challenges. And this is happening in the middle of a Pandemic as well as during the season where we were preparing to vote for elected offices.
I say this because at this time the right type of leadership is important as we ask ourselves what type of City we will be?
