Verbal sparks might be flying tonight, so much that Robert E. Lee, Gen. Beauregard and Jefferson David might want to get down from their cement perches, and sue for peace.

Tonight, the issue at Politics with the Punch will surely be confederate monments, at the minimum.  On the panel are Pierre McGraw, Founder and President, Monumental Task Committee, Hon. Troy Carter, Louisiana State Senator, 7th District (D-New Orleans) and one of the men at the middle of the debate, Councilman Jason Williams, who received national attention for his speech and position favoring the removal of the Statues, a controversy that shocked the community.

Then, not all will be serious either, as Carter and Williams, two men being considered to replace Mitch Landrieu as Mayor will likely exchange jabs and laughs along with Mr. Economic Development, that man with a quick wit, Michael Hecht, of GNO Inc.

So, for this fund and excitement, head over to The Eiffel Society tonight June 9, as the June edition of Politics with a Punch 2016 begins the summer’s fireworks amid the rattle of politics and the laughter of comedy.
Heading our political showcase panel are:

Jason Williams, New Orleans City Councilman

Hon. Troy Carter, Louisiana State Senator, 7th District (D-New Orleans)

James Cusimano, Outstanding Comedian; Local Headliner; Punch Favorite

Michael Hecht, President & CEO, Greater New Orleans, Inc.

Maureen "Mo" McConnell, Actress, Talk Show Host, & Producer

Pierre McGraw, Founder and President, Monumental Task Committee

Dr. Jeffrey Rouse, Orleans Parish Coroner

Mike Weinberger, Founder and President, Home Defense Foundation
