The Two Pauls In New Orleans: What's The Plan?

The two Pauls -- LA state supe Pastorek and incoming RSD supe Vallas (far left and middle, respectively) -- appeared onstage today in what was billed as their first public appearance together, mapping out their plans for New Orleans. Some notable tidbits: Vallas credited Sen. Landrieu for first putting the idea of coming to NOLA in his mind several years ago; Pastorek claimed that the RSD and the Orleans Parish (elected) board were working together now and emphasized the temporary nature of the state takeover. In what might be a hint at the timeframe question that many have asked about, Pastorek also likened Vallas' arrival to a two-year military stint. No one talks about this current year -- it's as if Jarvis never existed.
