OPPRC Open Letters

OPPRC released two media statements today.  The first was an open letter to Susan Guidry who chairs the Criminal Justice Committee of New Orleans City Council expressing concerns re: ongoing violence in the jail and calling for an immediate response.  The second was a statement calling for a conversation about term limits for powerful city offices like Sheriff, as we face runoff elections with “demoralizing choices like whether to re-elect either Charles Foti or Marlin Gusman ” …. “two men who, together, are responsible for 40 years of violence, incompetence and failure in the jail.”  Links to both statements are included below.
