Alger among Katrina honorees in Biloxi
Our old friend, Neighborhood Council President and LANCC Senator Jim Alger is among those being recognized in Biloxi MS later today for his response to Hurricane Katrina.
You may remember a year ago Alger and a group of his fellow Neighborhood Council friends funded a trip to Biloxi MS to coordinate a mission of mercy. Alger flew his own aircraft to the Gulf Coast and coordinated over a dozen other plots to do the same. Linking with locals in Tennessee, Virginia and Florida they ended up forming a pretty impressive land and air ooperation.
Together they are credited for saving countless lives as well as using the trip to force a spotlight on Biloxi’s plight which up until then had been pretty much overlooked by the national media.
The bigger question remains, what has the Federal Govenment learned from Katrina? Are we ready for a large disaster in Los Angeles? Do YOU have a plan?
