Judge Bagneris takes on Mitch Landrieu for New Orleans Mayor spot
Written by 

bagnerisAs suspected, Judge Michael G. Bagneris, a judge in the city’s Civil District Court for the past 20 years, submitted his resignation from the bench on Wednesday evening and will officially become a candidate for Mayor of New Orleans today at 11:45 am

 

Bagneris is expected to be a formidable candidate to take on Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

Bagneris, 63, was first elected to the bench on October 16, 1993.  He began his public service under Mayor Ernest N. “Dutch” Morial where he served as Executive Counsel to the Mayor.  Judge Bagneris began his legal career at the law firm of Fine and Waltzer, and rose to partner in the firm Fine, Waltzer and Bagneris.

A graduate of St. Augustine High School and Yale University, Bagneris studied history at the Ivy League school and earned a double major Bachelor of Arts degree.  He completed his legal training at Tulane’s School of Law in 1975.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
