Citizens for a New Louisiana is Louisiana’s only effort to make local government more transparent by simplifying the vast amounts of public documents into relatively short articles that are easy to understand. We do this because people are busy with home and work schedules and don’t have time to peruse thousands of pages of budgets, annual reports, and meeting minutes to find out what’s really going on in local government.
Right now, there are over 34 boards and commissions in Lafayette Parish alone. Each one holds their own public meeting at least once a month (some are twice a month or more). However, we only have enough resources to keep up with a small fraction of them. We also have a tremendous opportunity to expand into East Baton Rouge parish. That’s where you come in. By joining, you will become part of the only movement in Louisiana dedicated to improving our state, one parish at a time.
