Wake up everybody!! Tomorrow is the Louisiana Treasurer's Race. On the ballot are Derrick Edwards, Angele Neil Riser and John Schroder--the former, a Democrat, the latter three, Republicans.
However, based upon the statewide turnout projects, it's going to be a real snoozer as in very low turnout. If ever a time for No Doze.
If you’re looking for a good summary of the candidates, the background players, the organizations, the New Orleans election history, just contact political reporter, Christopher Tidmore.
On Wednesday, via Facebook Live, I discussed the New Orleans Mayor’s race and New Orleans elections with Tidmore, who writes for The Louisiana Weekly and who hosts a radio show locally.
Which is the candidate to beat in the New Orleans Mayor’s race—Michael Bagneris, Desiree Charbonnet, LaToya Cantrell, Troy Henry, Frank Spurlock? Will campaign money make the key difference? What are the major issues that appear to resonate with the voters? What might be the impact of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu? Will the Sewage and Water Board scandal seriously pour into the New Orleans Mayor’s election? The City Council elections? Who are the leading candidates in the competitive New Orleans City Council contests?
