The Work I Plan To Continue

It has been my pleasure to serve as your District E City Councilwoman for the past three and a half years. While we have faced many trials and challenges, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and major weather events like Hurricane Ida, we moved forward undauntingly. 

Over the last three and a half years, District E has had many notable successes in economic and community development. Many blighted district eyesores have been or are now in the process of being crucially transformed.

Read more below about the work we've done and the work we plan to continue.

Dear Constituents of District E:
THANK YOU for getting me to a runoff.  Now, more than ever, I need your support.
Why Re-Elect Me As Your City Councilwoman?


· I don’t tell you what you want to hear today and forget about you tomorrow. I tell you the truth.

· I work to identify and implement tangible solutions to issues plaguing our community.

· I am a woman of my word and a person of ACTION who has restored PUBLIC  TRUST in civic leadership.

Work I’ve Done and Will Continue to do For  You in My 2nd Term:

For the Lower Ninth Ward

· I worked closely with constituents to restore the McDonogh 19 Elementary School, the new home of the Tate, Etienne &   

  Prevost Civil Rights Interpretive Center.

· After 15 years, $3.2M funding has been allocated for Richard Lee Playground to include a kids splash pad.

· I will continue to work with  investors and developers building quality homes north of Claiborne Ave.

· Main Street  America Program is coming to St. Claude Ave. to restore the historic business corridor.

· I worked to restore the Sankofa Nature and Wetlands Trail and will continue work with the community on local green initiatives.

For New Orleans East

· After 50 years, $5M has been allocated to restore Lincoln Beach (Environmental Remediation begins soon).

· I restored the abandoned Lake Forest Manor building after 16 years to provide deeply affordable housing for our Seniors.

· I advocated and collaborated with our residents of Fort Pike/ Lake Catherine and allocated funding for the first volunteer fire        department.

· The work has been done to get the former Plaza site accessible and available for development.

· I fought for you and facilitated the Six Flags site Cooperative Endeavor Agreement between Bayou Phoenix and the City.

· I worked to bring Optimus Entertainment Arcade to our district for our kids and family fun. I will continue to bring more 

  businesses to our district.

· Caveman—Holiday Inn restoration is under construction and expected to be completed soon.

For District E

· I will continue to be accessible, accountable, honest, and transparent to you.

· I will work hard to ensure our district receives a fair share of funding from the bi-partisan Build Back Better Infrastructure Bill.

· I will continue to strengthen the Good Neighbor Program to aggressively tackle vacant lots.

· I will continue to be innovative with the powers of my office to work with potential investors that bring job opportunities and

  family entertainment activities throughout our district.

After 16 years of no movement with politicians who were elected to serve District E, in my freshman term,  I and my team were able to make things happen. Despite unprecedented challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic and several declared disasters, several projects both big and small are close to completion in less than four years. True revitalization and restoration of our district started under my leadership since you voted for me to be your City Councilwoman.

We are far from done.  I need your vote and your support to ensure that revitalization and restoration of District E continues. I am proud of our unified, resilient and diverse communities of District E.

Let’s Stay Together!

Remember, I am not running for some of us. I am running for all of us. 



Councilwoman Cyndi Nguyen, District E
