The New Orleans Assessor Situation-Is Everyone Paying Attention?
The Times-Picayune today has a story that a bill to consolidate our seven assessors into a parishwide one moved a step closer to reality by passing a House Panel. There is a similar bill in the senate. Neither have made it to the floor for debate yet. However, the two legislators who are repeatedly opposed to this legislation are Rep. Alex Heaton whose brother is 7th Municipal District Assessor and Rep. Jeff Arnold whose father is 5th Municipal District Assessor. I hope that everyone in their respective districts are paying attention to this. Throw these bums out. For those of you who dislike "political families", are you paying attention? This is the kind of bulls*&t that the rest of the world is looking at. If the City of Chicago can have one assessor than the City of New Orleans can have one assessor.
Both Seymour and I have posted about this before. I just want to try and make sure that everyone is still paying attention . . .
Check out Seymour's past post for details on each district. They have been in the same family for decades.
THROW THE BUMS OUT.
