Chinese drywall town hall meetings set for Chalmette, Slidell in coming

State Sens. Julie Quinn and A.G. Crowe will host two town hall meetings on
Chinese drywall in Chalmette and Slidell in the coming weeks.
The meetings will Oct. 14 at 6 p.m. at the St. Bernard Parish Council
chambers on Judge Perez Drive in Chalmette and on Oct. 21 at the Slidell
Northshore Harbor Center, also at 6 p.m.
Chinese drywall has been blamed for a number of problems in houses, ranging
from damaging appliances to destroying wiring. Some homeowners have also
complained of respiratory problems they think stem from the tainted drywall.
Many people have asked the state and federal government for help. A town
hall meeting last month in Mandeville drew more than 500 people.
