About Bill























Dear Friends:

Hurricane Season 2005 was devastating for South Louisiana: our citizens are displaced; families are separated; hundreds of thousands of homes are destroyed.

Hope is not lost. While the transition period for the City of New Orleans and surrounding areas will be challenging, I am committed to working in Congress to ensure that our local needs are met and that our city is rebuilt bigger, better and for all our citizens to return.

In our hurricane center, you will find updates from FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Health and Human Services and other federal agencies that may be helpful to you. Please check our website regularly for updates on temporary housing, federal contract opportunities, and other important information.

My downtown New Orleans office can help you as well, and can be reached at (504) 589-2274, or you can call my Washington, D.C. office TOLL-FREE at 1-866-498-6161 to speak to me or my staff about hurricane-related issues.

We will persevere. New Orleans is coming back. Working with you, I am committed to making sure that happens. Please join me in rebuilding our region and our lives.


Rep. William J. Jefferson
