Bring out more tar and feathers

Posted by schroeder915 on November 26, 2005

The Times-Picayune is naming the ten greater New Orleans representatives who voted against ending the corrupt local parish levee boards, consolidating them into one regional entity:

Jeff Arnold, D-Algiers;
N.J. Damico, D-Marrero;
Bobby Faucheux, D-LaPlace;
Nita Hutter, R-Chalmette;
Juan LaFonta, D-New Orleans;
Charmaine Marchand, D-New Orleans;
Arthur Morrell, D-New Orleans;
Kenneth Odinet, D-Arabi;
Gary Smith, D-Norco, and
Ernest Wooton, R-Belle Chasse.

Four others didn’t vote:

Tim Burns, R-Mandeville;
Alex Heaton, D-New Orleans;
Jalila Jefferson-Bullock, D-New Orleans, and
Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans

Everyone in southeast Louisiana ought to be raving mad.

The Times-Picayune, in rare form, is calling on citizens to hold them all accountable:

To find mailing addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses for them, go to the Legislature’s Web site at and click on “Legislators” at the top of the home page. From there, click on “How do I contact my state Senators and Representatives” and follow the links to a list for each chamber.

    I’m not sure we’ve gotten the whole story there. Certainly Jeff Arnold had some interesting things to add to the discussion.

    I generally take most everything I’m told by politicians with a big grain of salt – but when I read the amendments to that legislative bill, I found myself questioning the exemptions for Orleans (and also apparently West Jeff).

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
