Locally, New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell has opted in favor of reducing the health risks in favor of open the doors of commerce. For a city, which already has been facing severe shortages in funds to pay for basic services, every day of lockdown means that much fewer tax revenues, it so desperately needs.
One New Orleans citizen, Arnie Fielkow, has an interesting perspective on the current crises. Fielkow, served as a city councilman and its President after previously making his mark as the President of the New Orleans Saints. Fielkow then moved on to lead the National Basketball Retired Players Association. As head of that organization, he showed his continued love for and loyalty to the city by building relations between the former pro basketball players and New Orleans youths. Currently, he presides over the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans, an outreach organization, which provides necessary services to the area.
On Thursday, May 14 at 4 PM, Fielkow will discuss the lockdown in a Facebook Live interview which will also be broadcasted simultaneously on Bayoubuzz.com. You are invited to watch and participate in the event on Facebook LIve or on Bayoubuzz.com or on the Greater Jewish Federation Facebook Page
