YLC launches Facebook campaign to save the decorative lights on the Crescent City Connection.
A New Orleans non-profit that led the drive to illuminate the Crescent City Connection back in the 1980s is gathering support for getting the decorative lights turned back on. The Young Leadership Council is turning to Facebook for help.
A partial recount in the November referendum that extended tolls on the Crescent City Connection for 20 years has been set for Feb. 16.
The Times-Picayune reports state District Judge William Morvant ordered the review after Mike Teachworth of Harvey, director of Stop the Tolls, filed suit in December. The proposal was approved by 18 votes out of more than 308,000 cast.
