If elected Councilmember At Large, I will work to revive economic development corridors in neighborhoods across the city that will bring jobs and much needed services closer to where residents live," Councilmember Head explained.

 Councilmember Stacy Head was endorsed this week by the New Orleans Coalition. Other endorsements include the Independent Women's Organization, the Forum For Equality and the Regular Democratic Organization. The Head team is pleased that the New Orleans Coalition, a diverse organization of progressive citizens, chose to add their voice to the growing number of organizations supporting Stacy’s candidacy. The New Orleans Coalition's vote is another indication that our campaign is gaining acceptance by more citizens every day. 

"We are also reaching citizens across the City through dozens of community meetings and church visits from Algiers and New Orleans East to Treme and Central City" said Angela Young, faith-based coordinator. "Every day Councilmember Head is growing in her knowledge and understanding of diverse community needs," Young said.

On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
