Live Video Thursday: John Barry Discusses Coastal Loss at Newsmakers Event

He lost his seat on a local levee board due to his leadership on that suit. Tuesday, Barry announced that he had formed a nonprofit group to lobby for coastal restoration.

The event will be held at Basin Street Station & Visitors’ Center. A light breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m. and the program begins at 8 a.m. To RSVP, contact Eileen Loh. If you can’t make it, you can watch the video stream here.
