chervenak edThe New Orleans elections 2017 is over.

Now come the post mortems and the efforts by those elected to office to put together city government for the next three and half years.

The pollster that was right on the mark this election cycle was Ed Chervenak, Professor of University of New Orleans.

tidmore mayorMight tomorrow’s New Orleans Mayors Race be so negative and dirty that it could result in a Desiree Charbonnet victory over LaToya Cantrell and a landslide victory for Republican John Schroder over Democrat Derrick Edwards n the Louisiana treasurer's race?

IA cantrellThe Desiree Charbonnet campaign is on the attack with two days left in the New Orleans Mayor's race against LaToya Cantrell. On Tuesday the University of New Orleans poll indicated that Charbonnet trails Cantrell by 11 points. Last week, another poll evidenced an 18 point gap.

Another poll evaluating the New Orleans Mayor's race shows that LaToya Cantrell is leading Desiree Charbonnet, however, this one by eleven points. Last week, a different poll, that one by the Democratic Education Reform, indicated that Cantrell was ahead by 18 points. The election is now less than five days away.

Fundraising

cantrell charonnetNow, for a New Orleans Mayor’s Race wrap:

LaToya Cantrell has become the money machine, not so, Desiree Charbonnet. The Inter-Denominational Ministerial Alliance, who already supported Desiree Charbonnet has injected itself into the race again, calling for Cantrell’s resignation, which prompted her quick rebuke.  Also, a date has been set for the WWL TV forum, two days from election day.

The old famous adage, “money is the mother’s milk of politics” might be also said, “milking a scandal is the "mother" of all political campaign tactics”.

No doubt, the Desiree Charbonnet campaign is in "udder" "spread the Latoya Cantrell credit card controversy mode.  Just how much mileage and bad press it can get from it before New Orleans Mayor's Race election day, is a topic for serious discussion. Or, better said--will voters leave home and vote for Cantrell, without it (being top of mind)?

shocked pollSurprised? Indeed. Well, how about, somewhat shocked!

This morning, I discovered that LaToya Cantrell is ahead of Desiree Charbonnet by a whopping 18 points, according to a research firm LJR Custom Strategies on behalf of the local branch of a national education reform organization, Democrats for Education Reform.

naginWhile the New Orleans Mayor's race has focused on personality flaws, corruption, one of the issues that has really yet to surface in the public debate is "gentrification".

The Desiree Charbonnet for Mayor of New Orleans campaign has just shot another city credit card broadside to the LaToya Cantrell for Mayor campaign today with a press release, claiming that the Councilwoman Cantrell has "even more questions to answer" today as it claims "a large number of specific violations".
