We at Data News Weekly, in our continued mission as “The People’s Paper” encourage all of our people if you have not already voted to go out and “Vote Yes” on May 4, 2019 on the Park Millage Renewal. We are supporting this because we must support programming that help the youth of our city.
This millage is something that is truly done in the spirt of all coming together for the common good of our citizens and most importantly our young people. By “Voting Yes” this is an investment in our future and continuing to move us in the right direction.
In this election we have a chance to make history by creating a more equitable distribution of funding of all four of New Orleans’ Parks and Recreation Agencies; Audubon, NORDC, Parks and Parkways and this includes adding funding for the City’s biggest green space, City Park.
Data News Weekly would like to see this Millage pass so that all our citizens can spend more time enjoying our thousands of acres of green space across the city. This, in addition to the dozens of fitness, swimming, and recreation centers that offer free programming and activities for all ages for all our citizens to enjoy and is something that can enrich us all as we move forward together.
We are at a turning point in our history and Voting Yes would create a giant leap forward that would have an immediate and sustainable impact. We are encouraging you to Vote Yes. And we understand that we are in the throes of spring and the summer and we understand that we are the land of many festivals, but we ask you to please go out and take the time to Vote Yes on the Parks and Recreation Millage.
Join with leaders, civic organizations and citizens who have already come out in support of this Millage. We at Data News Weekly want to add our voice to this chorus and encourage the citizens of New Orleans to in a singular voice “Vote Yes” on the Parks and Parkway Millage Renewal. It is an investment for the future of our great City.
