Ok and then what?

It's hard for me think of any way breaking East New Orleans off from the city helps anyone at all. But I especially can't imagine how it would benefit East New Orleans residents. Nevertheless they persist.
NEW ORLEANS – Residents in New Orleans East will continue talks Tuesday about the possibility of seceding from the city.

Eastern New Orleans maintains a reputation as a dangerous and poor area largely ignored and neglected by city leaders. It’s that perception that has spurred a new effort: seceding from the city of New Orleans to form a new city that would be known as East New Orleans, which would include the Lower 9th Ward.
The mayor's office is expected to issue a "response" at tonight's meeting. 6 PM tonight at St. Maria Goretti on Crowder Boulevard.
