Court Watch NOLA is always trying to make it easier for the public to learn more about our elected officials. Over the past seven years, CWN has collected data and published reports to hold our public servants in the criminal justice system accountable, but we recognize that these lengthy reports are not as user-friendly as they could be for voters and other citizens. CWN, with the assistance of Baptist Community Ministries, is therefore proud to launch new, easier-to-use “Elected Officials” pages on its website.
Curious about one particular elected official, and don’t want to wade through unrelated data? Just go to www.courtwatchnola.org, find the “Elected Officials” drop-down menu, and select the public servant or office you’re interested in to find background information, volunteer observations, and helpful charts and data from CWN’s 2013 Report and other sources. We’ve started with the Judges our volunteers observe in Criminal District Court, but will be adding additional pages soon!
To assist CWN’s volunteer observation and public education efforts, including this new, easy-to-use web resource, please consider making a secure, tax-deductible contribution through the “Donate” button on the right. Also be sure to follow Court Watch NOLA on Facebook for regular court updates.
