Change to At-large Candidates Zoom Call

We’re cancelling this previously-scheduled Zoom call, due to the after effects of Hurricane Ida: power outages (still), emotional exhaustion, settling in of those who evacuated, settling in and restocking for those who are only now getting back their power, and so on.

Instead, we strongly recommend attending the 25 Sept Zoom forum that Together Louisiana is setting up. As soon as I have the registration link, I’ll share it.

City Council At-Large Candidates, 15 Sept, 6:30 via Zoom

Carrollton-Riverbend NA and Carrollton United are putting together a Zoom meeting with the four At-Large candidates. We’re planning it for Wednesday 15 Sept. at 6:30 p.m.


It will NOT be a debate or a “forum”, but each candidate will have time to talk, and then to address issues that Betty Dimarco (CU co-facilitator) and I are gathering now, with input from neighbors. If you have topics you’d like raised, let us know here or via email (eleyda.crna@gmail.com).


The Zoom link is below; I’ll resend it a few days before the meeting.

Orleans Parish Prison Reform Coalition Zoom mtg: 9 Aug, 6 pm

This group is behind the “Help Not Handcuffs” program, and is getting good traction. Remember, in a few months we can elect a new sheriff; these folks are no it! Invitation to their 9 Aug Zoom meeting is below the email copied below.

Your dedication to creating a more just and free New Orleans is paying off! Because of your hard work:

  • Our fight for ‘Help Not Handcuffs’ is becoming a reality. OPPRC’s Executive Director, Sade Dumas, was appointed to the task force charged with creating the non-police response unit our City desperately needs.
  • City Council passed a measure pushing the City Planning Commission to further study the alternative retrofit plan instead of Phase III psychiatric jail expansion.
  • The City Council’s Criminal Justice Committee deferred voting on a resolution that would have potentially encouraged the City to soften its opposition to expanding the jail through the building of Phase III.

The fight’s not over yet, but your canvassing efforts, petitioning, and public comments are already changing the criminal legal system here in New Orleans. We hope to see you at our monthly meeting this Monday, August 9, at 6 p.m., where we’ll discuss our next steps in our fight to bring Help Not Handcuffs to our community as we work to stop Phase III psychiatric jail construction. This meeting is critical as we plan to organize around the August 24 City Planning Commission Meeting and share the following steps on the Orleans Sheriff Platform. Will you join us?

For dog owners: Spay/neuter or get an Intact Permit!

This has been in the City Code for a while, now, but Patricia asked me to share the info to be sure people know about it:

My name is Patricia Lovelady and I am with the Louisiana SPCA’s New Orleans Humane Law & Rescue. I am reaching out to you with information that may be of interest to you members of your neighborhood association. The City of New Orleans has a law that requires all dogs age 6-months and older be spayed/neutered or have a City Intact Permit.

While this law has been around since 2013, many pet owners are still unaware of its existence. The Louisiana SPCA is contracted to provide animal control for the City of New Orleans and is also responsible for enforcing Intact Permits. To help spread awareness about Intact Permits my hope is that you will share this information with you’ your neighborhood association members.

I am also available to speak to this topic at upcoming meetings or submit an article to be included in upcoming communication. More information about Intact Permits can be found on our website at www.louisianaspca.org/intactpermit.
