Last year at this time we were working feverishly on the issue of the illegal demolition of people’s homes.
This year we have been working just as feverishly on the “non existant”:http://www.squanderedheritage.com/2008/07/12/noah-and-nora/ home gutting program.
Our Mayor, “strongly admonished the reporter”:http://www.wwltv.com/video/?z=y&nvid=265870 and myself. The Chairman Ed Shanklin was equally as aggresive in his presentation and denial of culpability.
“Several Council members asked for answers”:http://www.wwltv.com/local/stories/wwl073008mlleenoah.1b2e43e5.html but some members were noticably absent.
And then today, the NOAH Board met in an “Emergency Session”:http://www.wwltv.com/topstories/stories/wwl080108mlNOAHsuspends.5443b9b.html and in 5 minutes took action to shut it down. As you can see in the video Mr.Shanklin has much less to say in defense of this organization.
New Orleanians deserve better.
