Jackie Clarkson: "I spent one hour on the bridge coming over here tonight. I could kill Jefferson Parish for voting our tolls down.Because everybody knows that there was never any traffic on the bridge when it cost one dollar to cross it.
Tonight's meeting is all the way out at Joe Brown Park in District E. If Ms. Clarkson wants to make this one, she'll have to cross two toll free highway bridges to get there. Let's hope she has the fortitude, though, since she always has such interesting things to say in the East.
Also, if you're going and things happen to run a little late, you.. or your family's driver.. should also be aware.
