Friends:

We were overjoyed when the November 6th primary results were announced and our campaign came in first place. But our work is not finished; we have one more hill to climb together on December 8 (or early voting, which continues through Saturday, December 1), and I am humbly asking for your vote and support.

From the very beginning, our campaign has focused on the community and the positive outcomes we can achieve when we work together. When we increase economic opportunities, expand public education, eliminate blight and offer accessible and affordable health care, we are improving the quality of life and making our streets safer.  Continue reading »

Friends, we are on the final leg of our campaign for City Council District B. Election Day is Saturday, December 8th, and I encourage everyone to vote and make their voice heard.

This campaign began when a group of concerned citizens, small business owners, and community leaders got together to make sure the voices of real people would be represented on the City Council. This small group convinced me to run for the recently vacated District B council seat and do what no other candidate had done in modern history—to earn my place on the ballot through a petition.

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.

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 »
