Phyllis Montana LeBlanc talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the anniversary

“I need Mayor Landrieu to stop telling the lies. We’re not back, that ain’t true. We’re back 50 percent. When you go into the lower ninth ward, which I did yesterday, it looks like Katrina just happened yesterday. Now we’re dealing with gentrification. It’s still a struggle. We had a huge opportunity with millions of dollars coming here, why not bring New Orleans back? Don’t just cherry pick where the money goes,” LeBlanc said.
