One of the most important issues facing the City of New Orleans is the need for repair and maintenance of critical infrastructure, specifically our streets, water, sewer, and drainage lines.
Improving our infrastructure will require significant funding, a difficult task for any community. Before raising taxes, perhaps we can identify existing funding sources that could be reallocated towards critical infrastructure. One such suggestion is explained in this op-ed from Janet Howard, a former President and CEO of BGR and long-time advocate for reform in the City of New Orleans.
Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans will be studying this issue carefully in 2020, and we will share information and calls to action with you as they arise.
