No wonder our city is in the position it’s in

Re: NORD Commission again stumbles over Open Meetings Act, has to delay decision

TIRED? We are. Ever since Hurricane Katrina, our city and state have been bombarded by out of town people riding in on their white horses only to ravage our treasures and recovery dollars and split when the money dries up. With the NORD director position we have a chance to reward and thank PROVEN, DEDICATED, and ABLE leadership that was developed in our city! When will we learn that these out of town people have nothing but their wallet’s best interest at heart?

The fact that the ONLY negative people can say about Vic Richard is that he doesn’t have a college degree after his decades of proven ability with NORD is shameful, and spits in the face of every hard-working, non-degreed citizen of this state.

What is the message we send? No matter how hard you work or get accomplished, if you have New Orleans, LA listed as your birthplace you will not succeed here.

No wonder our city is in the position it is in.
