Will and Jackie’s One-Two Punch
By Green Coast on 12 Oct 2016
What’s pertinent info and what should be on your radar? Like you, Green Coast President Will Bradshaw and GCE Services’ Managing Partner Jackie Dadakis spend a lot of time slogging through the mounds of data, articles, papers and reports.
Jackie pays close attention to the latest energy policy news and what it means or can mean. Will monitors affordable housing news and policy improvements and changes. Their “One-Two Punch”; connects you with what they’re reading and seeing on a New Orleans level and national level.
I am very concerned about the affordable housing crisis in New Orleans. Prices are rising rapidly for renters and home buyers and it is forcing out many of our culture bearers, families and others. I believe, however, that there is a solution—inclusionary zoning—and our City leaders and fair housing advocates should lead this effort so that everyone that wants to live in New Orleans can afford to do so. The New Orleans Advocate recently published my thoughts on the subject. Please take a look.
If you want to get involved, you have to be informed.
On Tuesday, November 1, Tulane Hillel will be hosting as part of their “Big Issue” series a panel discussion entitled “Intersection: Public Transportation, Jobs, and Prosperity in NOLA.” Flozell Daniels, president and CEO of Foundation for Louisiana, will moderate the panel, which includes RTA General Manager and Vice President Justin Augustine; Pamela Legge from RTA’s Citizen Advisory Committee; Alex Posorske, executive director of Ride New Orleans; Jeffery Schwartz, executive director of Broad Community Connections; and Samantha Hithe Washington, vice president of human resources for Harrah’s New Orleans.
