Ben Carson to visit New Orleans Tuesday

NEW ORLEANS, LA. - U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is set to visit New Orleans Tuesday afternoon.

Carson, who traveled to Baton Rouge Monday, is visiting the state to tour areas impacted by last year’s historic flooding and the 2005 hurricanes. Carson’s office said the visit coincides with the anniversary of Donald Trump’s visit to Denham Springs following the August floods.

Tuesday, Carson will tour public housing developments rebuilt with HUD funding after Hurricane Katrina. He is scheduled to tour Bienville Basin and Columbia Parc starting just before 1 p.m.
