Louisiana Legislature Session: Christopher Tidmore LIVE

cantrell ledgerAnd there’s more…

That is essentially the message from the Desiree Charbonnet’s For Mayor campaign in the ongoing LaToya Cantrell’s credit card controversy.

Charbonnet and Cantrell are the remaining candidates for New Olreans Mayor opening.  The election is November 18.

henry bagnerisHow might LaToya Cantrell’s recent New Orleans credit card flap translate into Desiree Charbonnet get more of the middle-class black and the conservative white voter support that went to other candidates, particularly, Judge Michael Bagneris and Troy Henry in the New Orleans Mayor’s race primary?

 

Indeed, the New Orleans Mayor’s race just got a lot more interesting.

The issue is—not whether the city’s education system is adequate, or how to improve our economic development deficiencies or whether we have money for pumping water.

No. Right now, for one candidate who is now running commercials--the focus should be on credit cards, belated payments for personal expenses and potential violations of law.

Does Derrick Edwards have a Chinaman’s chance of winning the Louisiana Treasurer’s race?

Conventional wisdom says, no way. Not a Chinaman, not an Englishman, only, a “no-way man” chance of prevailing.

The top Louisiana politicos and pollsters in Louisiana pretty much agree.

In a series of online Facebook Live interviews, post-election, with Dr. Ed Chervenak, Bernie Pinsonat, Jeff Crouere, Jim Brown, John Couvillon, none of them have felt there was any possible scenario to victory.

You are invited to join us for NOLA 300, an official event of the New Orleans Tricentennial!

When one is down 9-points or so, with three weeks left to go until the final round-- the New Orleans Mayor’s race runoff elections--what are your options?

You jab here and there until you can swing the uppercut.  That’s what Desiree Charbonnet appears to be doing lately.

The following is an update of the medical condition of Mia Bagneris, the daughter of Judge Michael Bagneris, a recent candidate for New Orleans Mayor. Ms. Bagneris was struck by a driver as she was getting out of her car after the Election night party. The update is from his public relations person, Cheron Brylski.

The endorsements continue to flow, one for Cantrell another for Charbonnet.

Last night, one of the leading organizations in New Orleans, The Alliance For Good Government endorsed LaToya Cantrell for New Orleans Mayor. During the general election, The Alliance backed Micahel Bagneris, who came in third place during the primary. Bagneris has also supported Cantrell for mayor over Desiree Charbonnet.

One of the two well-respected New Orleans-based African American newspapers, the New Orleans Tribune, has endorsed Desiree Charbonnet today for New Orleans Mayor. The other paper, the Louisiana Weekly, had endorsed her competition, LaToya Cantrell in the general election, in what was a close decision, according to the Weekly.

The endorsement for Charbonnet today is stunning. Simply stunning, not for its decision in picking Charbonnet over LaToya Cantrell but in its obvious anger towards the process.

When I really think about it, the words "slim and none" come to my mind.

That's what I think when I consider the actual chance that an African American woman, hailing from California, arriving here in 1990 as a Xavier University student, would be one of two remaining candidates to be the next Mayor of New Orleans--a historically closed-community, if ever one.
