New Orleans elections: Clarkson, Bagneris, surprises and more the same

city-hallWith only hours left to the end of qualifying for elective office for the City of New Orleans, there have been some surprises and perhaps, hardly any surprises at all or simply more of the same faces running for the same or different available positions.



The big surprise of the week: On Friday, Judge Michael Bagneris declared to run against current Mayor Mitch Landrieu who already had one candidate contesting , that of Danatus King, President of the local NAACP.

In the Sheriff's race, it was no big shock and that race now has two quite familiar faces for that job.  Ex-Orleans Parish Sheriff and Attorney General Charles C. Foti Jr. is taking on Marlin N. Gusman, the current sheriff.  Also in that race are Ira Thomas and Quentin Brown.

One major "you gotta be kidding me" did occur this week when council-Woman-at-Large, Jacquelyn Clarkson decided to stay in politics once District C seat became available.  Her opponents for this position include Nadine Ramsey, Carlos Williams and Eloise Williams.

Here is the unofficial qualifying as of 1:20 pm today

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
