James Perry's thoughts on Nagin's recent moves.

James Perry, New Orleans Mayoral Candidate: “Today’s decision by the Mayor is yet another example of politics impeding New Orleans’ progress. What should have been a mechanism to attract desperately needed economic development and private investment has been politicized in response to the Council’s vote against the Mayor on the purchase of the Chevron building.”

“With our City in the midst of toughening economic times, it is unacceptable for our elected so-called ‘leaders’ to discourage investment simply to settle personal and political scores. This action is not only irresponsible but shameful.”

“A shared prosperity of true economic development devoid of politics should be something that unites us. We must move past this pettiness and put progress above politics.”
