computermarketing1aDo you know someone passionate about Faubourg St. John that is willing to donate a couple of hours each day to work the website at and promote the neighborhood via various social media outlets?

I’ve been doing it for over a decade and the time for a fresh perspective is long overdue.

strong-trueKeep in mind, it can’t be someone with an agenda other than the greater good of the entire neighborhood and one who will have the stamina to continue to be upbeat about Faubourg St. John year after year.

Please send a message to if you know someone you believe can take our internet presence to new heights with consistent and persistent marketing of our message.   The potential candidate must understand that this is a long term volunteer commitment.

Thank you for all you do to move New Orleans forward,
