New Orleans, La. – About 200 people gathered in Central City to tell Mayor Landrieu and his administrators what they want given priority in the upcoming budget. Several representatives of a senior center asked for more support. Others asked for more code enforcement to clear blight. No one mentioned police, despite Superintendent Ronal Serpas sitting alongside the head table.
"I'm not surprised at all. We're working very hard. We are making big headway in this community."
