Update, 5:24 PM: Permission granted!
Thanks, Mr Stein!
Thanks to Scout Prime at First Draft for the heads-up on it.
It is simply one of these things that drives home with a bullet what we in New Orleans have been saying about the current administration in DC and their biggest supporters - they are out for themselves and that is that. Their own little Green Zone, in the form of a bailout scheme, is being created even as we speak. Tighten your belts, folks. Times will be tough.
Once again, sign the petition to extend the public comment period on the School Facilities Master Plan for Orleans Parish here.
A community review meeting on the Master Plan for Districts 1 & 2 will be held tonight at 6 at Fannie Williams Elementary School, 11755 Dwyer Rd.
An emergency meeting on the plan is happening at 6 PM at First Grace United Methodist Church, 3401 Canal Street. More details at the end of this post.
And yes, I know both of the meetings mentioned above are happening at the same time. My advice: if you have read through the Master Plan and wish to get a complaint/question/observation on record with the OPSB, go to Fannie Williams. If you don't know too much about the plan and would like to learn more, head to First Grace. You can always email a response afterwards to firstname.lastname@example.org, and it, too, will be on record.
