Safer Neighborhoods, Better Streets, and A Stronger Local Economy

PUBLIC SAFETY

Public safety is job one for city government. I will draw on my civic leadership experience to unite people to tackle crime and violence. We have to fight every day in every neighborhood and on every block to make our city safe.

OUR JOBS AND OUR LOCAL ECONOMY

The people of New Orleans have done a remarkable job rebuilding after Katrina and much progress has been made. We need to continue harnessing the city’s creativity and entrepreneurial spirit to build a stronger economy for all of our people.

OUR STREETS

The streets in District A are a national disgrace. They need to be fixed without delay. I will make sure District A gets its fair share of street funding. We need a sensible action plan not only to fix broken streets and decaying sewer and water systems, but also to properly maintain them into the future.

OUR NEIGHBORHOODS

Our city is a fabric of unique neighborhoods, each with traditions and challenges. I will listen closely to and work together with residents and civic groups to look for common sense solutions. Council members must stay in close touch with our communities to stay on top of the issues our neighborhoods face.

Meet Joe Giarrusso

Joe Giarrusso wants to show New Orleans that public officials can truly be public servants again. Born in New Orleans, Joe is married to Cassie Giarrusso and the father of two young daughters in public school.  Joe is stepping up to champion a better future for our community as our next District A Councilmember. And he isn’t just running to win – he’s running to make a difference. Joe will be an independent-minded change agent on our City Council laser-focused on safe neighborhoods, better streets, and a stronger local economy.
