In a week where many New Orleanians are giving thanks and celebrating the holiday with their family and friends, I too would like to take pause to give thanks.

First, I’m thankful to the voters of District B who have expressed their confidence in my plan for our future by voting for me on November 6th. I continue to work hard in the runoff by reaching out to supporters whose candidates didn’t make the runoff and sharing my message throughout the district. Continue reading »

Elections are about choices and about the path voters determine is best for their community. This is true on a national level and on a local level. On November 6, voters in District B chose two people to compete in the runoff to be their councilperson. I am honored to be one of those candidates.

The final weeks of the campaign have been quite humbling for me personally and a wonderful boost to our supporters. Our campaign to make New Orleans safer has picked up the endorsement of Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Congressman Cedric Richmond , Sheriff Marlin Gusman, Assessor Errol Williams and State Representatives Helena Moreno, Walt Leger, and Jared Brossett. A tremendous cross section of support.

In the past few days, the endorsements have continued with the Times Picayune, Gambit Weekly and The New Orleans Tribune. Again, a wonderful blend of support from every part of the city. Continue reading »

Going out of town? Working late? Have an after school or work event that prevents you from getting home? Have an injury or illness? Whatever the reason, if something is preventing you from taking care of your pet, we can help.

My name is Christy and I’m a professional pet sitter. I’ve taken my life-long love of animals, along with my years of caring for my own various pets (dogs, cats, fish, mice, birds and a rabbit) and my friends’ pets and started Petit Pet Care. I’m professional because I am incorporated, bonded,  insured and a member of Pet Sitters Associates and abide by their code of ethics. I take my business and the care of your pet very seriously.

Petit Pet Care takes care of your pets when you aren’t able to. We come to your house, where your pet feels most comfortable, feed them, give them fresh water, walk them, clean their litter box or bedding. Care goes beyond just the basics and includes TLC – we spend time with your pet, petting, brushing, and/or playing – what ever they need. We send you daily updates via text or email, including photos, so you can be assured all is well. If you are out of town, we can bring in your mail and newspaper, adjust lights and keep an eye on things around your home.

Please visit our web site for details on services offered, service area and rates. Mention you saw us on Uptown Messenger, and get a 10% discount on your first 5 pet sitting visits or first 5 dog walks. Offer good through November 16, 2012. Discount cannot be combined with other discounts.

Crime is the number one issue facing New Orleans right now. This recent wave of shootings illustrates what we all know– this has to stop. It is with this in mind that I am honored that District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro, Jr, has endorsed me for City Council District B.

“I believe that Eric understands the issues facing the residents of this district better than any candidate in the field.  He understands better than any candidate how to reform our criminal justice system to increase public safety,” said Leon Cannizzaro. “While he understands and supports initiatives that will allow our city to get smarter on crime, he also understands that we need to get tough on violent criminals.” Continue reading »

New Orleans is a unique city in many ways, one of which is the way our city government and representation is structured. Cities much smaller than New Orleans have twice as many City Council members, which allows them to specialize on different issues. The relatively small number of New Orleans City Council members requires each member to have a broad-based knowledge on nearly every issue from education to infrastructure, blight and ethics to job creation.

That’s why I’ve released a comprehensive platform on my website I want voters and residents of District B to know how I intend to address the multitude of challenges and issues facing our city. Continue reading »

As I knock on doors and attend community meetings and forums throughout the district, I get to listen to the concerns of voters – real people rather than polls – but real people who are truly concerned about the direction of their neighborhoods. And, the most common question is in some form or another, “What are you going to do about crime?” Continue reading »

It doesn’t matter where I happen to be knocking on doors, Uptown, Downtown, Garden District, Warehouse District, Central City, Irish Channel, Broadmoor, or Mid City the refrain is the same at nearly every door and business. “We’ve got to do something about crime.”  It’s the one thing everyone in the city can agree upon. It’s the one thing I’ve been focused on every day for the past 6 years and it’s the one thing I’ll continue to work on as City Council person in District B. Continue reading »

I am not the first person to say that I did not expect to make my life in New Orleans, but that just three months after first coming here, it had taken a hold of me and was calling me home. It’s a story that I share with so many individuals who have moved here and fallen in love — with the city, the food, the music, the people, — the unique vibrancy that permeates all aspects of this beautiful NOLA life. It’s a story that I think that others relate to as well – the many folks who leave New Orleans; for school, for work, for necessity; and who find themselves called home. And it’s one of the things that makes this city so special. Continue reading »

Could Rye be the reason Magazine street’s favorite UPS delivery guy has been spotted parking his van so often in the 4200 block? Don’t tell the man in Brown, but talk on the street is the proprietress of Rye has been known to keep plenty company with the Fed-Ex fella too. That must be why she is always found with a steamer at her side and new styles on the racks!
