What They’re Doing in New Orleans

New Orleans inspector general posts own credit-card statements online

Amid increasing scrutiny of credit-card use by public officials in and around New Orleans, the city’s inspector general Edouard Quatrevaux has opted to post his office’s monthly statements online for public viewing.

The possible abuse of credit cards by various public officials, ranging from former Mandeville mayor Eddie Price to former Public Belt Railroad general manager Jim Bridger, has made headlines in recent years. Just two weeks ago, Kenneth Ferdinand, the former director of the French Market Corp., was charged with theft in connection with his alleged use of a public charge card for private purposes.

In a prepared statement, Quatrevaux said: “The citizens have a right to know how we spend City funds, and this is one small part of providing them with that information.”

    Probably will never happen in Jonesboro. Can we get a push going for this to be done?
