"At Home" event - this Friday!

VCPORA's At Home - this Friday!

VCPORA invites you to
Home in the Vieux Carre

Friday, March 19, 2010 *  5:30 - 7:00  *  1009 St. Philip Street

Please join VCPORA at the fifth in our "At Home in the Vieux Carre" series this Friday!  These events rotate monthly to various private homes in the French Quarter, and offer attendees from the Quarter and across the city a glimpse into private French Quarter residences.  This month we're featuring the beautiful home of Betty and Bill Norris at 1009 St. Philip Street.  At just under 1000 sf, it's a jewel box of a house, and once you see how well laid-out and livable it is, you'll wonder why you ever thought you needed more space!  So come by to learn about the home, life in the Quarter, see the tranquil courtyard, and make new friends.  As always, we'll serve wine and nibbles.

So head on over after work, then have dinner at one of Quarter's many fine restaurants.  We hope to see many of you there, and encourage you to forward this invitation widely!

Admission is $5 for VCPORA members, $10 for non-members,
and anyone joining at the event will receive free admission! 

For more information, call 504-581-7200 or email info@vcpora.org.

Candidate Interviews - Mayor, District C, and At-Large

Vieux Carre Property Owners, Residents and Associates and French Quarter Citizens conducted interviews with the major candidates for mayor, council district C, and council-at-large.  Below are links to summaries of those interviews and the text of the mayoral interviews (we'll send the full text of the council interviews in a separate email).

We used a set list of questions for all candidates, although naturally in the course of the interviews other topics were covered.  We attempted to capture the salient points from these interviews, and in cases where we quote the candidates directly, we’ve used quotation marks.

VCPORA and FQC thank all the candidates for their time and for their energy.  Now it’s up to us, as citizens, to study the candidates and their positions, and make informed votes.

Remember, early voting continues until this Saturday.  It's fast and easy - click here to see where and how.
