HB776: Voting Rights Stripped from Green, Libertarian, Reform Parties?

Open Letter to House & Govt. Affairs Committee
HB776 was presented as a pro-active and theoretical cost saving measure on behalf of the Secretary of State's office, however it not only disenfranchises voters of the Green, Libertarian, and Reform parties but it also disenfranchises the "unaffiliated" voters as well.

Feasibility Study on Charity Hospital Renovation


A feasibility study released today indicates that it would be 20% cheaper to renovate New Orleans’ Charity Hospital into a state-of-the-art facility than it would be to build a new hospital on another site.  The report, commissioned by the Foundation for Historical Louisiana and created by a team of architectural, structural engineering and financial consulting firms led by RMJM Hillier have estimated that completely overhauling the existing hospital building would cost $484 million, compared to a $620 million price tag for the creation of a similar facility in another location.

“Can Charity Hospital be turned into a modern hospital? We say unequivocally that it can,” stated Steve McDaniel of RMJM Hillier, the Principal Architect of the renovation plans.  These plans included tearing out the entire inside of the building and replacing all existing services such as heating and cooling systems with new, modern systems.

At its presentation the study was praised by healthcare activists including Green Party of Greater New Orleans (GPGNO) member Brad Ott.

New Orleans East Chef Menteur Landfill

Media Advisory–September 11, 2007
After Katrina, the residents of New Orleans East were shocked that the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) and the Mayor of New Orleans approved dumping of potentially hazardous household materials at the Chef Menteur Landfill at 166000 Chef Menteur Highway without first placing a leachate collection liner. It posed long-term threats to the ecology of the nearby Bayou Savage National Wildlife Refuge, the Maxtent Canal, and the water supply of the residential community living within 1 mile of the landfill.

A Resolution to Reopen New Orleans' Rev. Avery C. Alexander Charity Hospital NOW!


The Green Party of Louisiana Endorsed the following Resolution at the State convention on Sept. 8 2007

As survivors of Hurricane Katrina we are soliciting your support on this resolution to have health care services restored at Charity Hospital in New Orleans. In particular, we are concerned about the mental health services at the Rev. Avery C. Alexander Campus. Everyone should be fully aware of the mental and physical distress that the people of New Orleans have been under and continue to endure. Many who had no mental or physical issues prior to the hurricane are becoming ill and have no where to go due to the closure of this public hospital.
