I’m sure with all the challenges this overactive hurricane season has presented, the New Orleans race for Congress is probably the last thing you have been thinking about. But that doesn’t change the fact that election day is fast approaching. October 4th is the primary – do you know who you’ll be supporting?GRN is excited to invite you to come out Saturday to hear directly from the candidates on issues related to responding to global warming, building a green energy economy, and creating green jobs now! Given New Orleans vulnerability to the effects of climate change such as rising sea level and stronger storms, as well as the opportunity that our recovery represents, we think the next member of Congress from Louisiana’s Second District (your district) should be a leader in advocating for the transition toward a cleaner, greener New Orleans.Please come out and hear from the candidates yourself!September 27th 7-9 PM. Loyola’s Roussel Hall (click for map)The forum will be moderated by WWL News Anchor Dennis Woltering, and we have confirmation from 6 of the 7 candidates (unfortunately, Representative Jefferson will be unavailable).The forum is the capstone event in a day of New Orleans activities for the National Day of Action for Green Jobs Now, so please go to to find out details for all the other great events being planned. For questions about the forum, please contact Jonathan Henderson.Hope to see you at the forum,Aaron VilesCampaign Director
