Below are excerpts from some of his recent pieces on The Louisiana Weekly:
New Orleans mayoral candidates pursuit of the white vote
“Desiree Charbonnet, LaToya Cantrell, Troy Henry, and Michael Bagneris have each adopted a “wedge issue” to demonstrate their individual palatability to city’s normally conservative Caucasian electorate in recent weeks.
None of these positions particularly alienate their African-American base constituencies, and in all but Michael Bagneris’ case, might actually prove popular with some middle-class Black voters. Still, the break from the normally liberal discussion points in an overwhelmingly Democratic city underpins a political truth.”
Mayor’s race upended by S&WB privatization threat
Sixteen years ago, the City of New Orleans was awash in controversy over the effort to “privatize” the Sewerage and Water Board. In actually, the then-S&W Board and the Morial Administration never intended to sell the material asserts, but to have a private operator run the system for 30 years. The concept died amidst colossal political rancor.
When Mayor Mitch Landrieu proposed hiring a private company to provide a third-party analysis of the problems of—and the challenges facing—the city’s water management system, some members of the Mayor’s senior staff privately suggested that the likely analyst, Veolia Water Technologies, could simply transition into the private management of the Orleans Sewerage and Water Board.
