TBR Creates New Political Culture: Takes Action on Food Desert

"The biggest local election forum of this political season was nothing like the candidates are used to. Together Baton Rouge hosted 30 of the 32 candidates for East Baton Rouge Mayor-president and Metro Council Monday night, with approximately 500 people in attendance at Mt. Zion First Baptist Church.

But they did not show up in order to listen to the candidates. 'What we're pushing for,' said Dr. Jeanne George, a Together Baton Rouge committee co-chair, 'is to get them to listen to the citizens.'"
