City Council Candidates Announced

Qualifying closed today for the March 24, 2012 Louisiana Presidential and Municipal Primaries. Of most importance to me are the candidates for Arnie Fielkow’s New Orleans City Council At-Large seat. Unsurprisingly, I’m betting heavily that the candidates who’ve qualified will not be limiting city government any time soon. I’m already mourning my inability to run for the seat myself this time around.

Nevertheless, the fun of analyzing the candidates begins…now:

Austin Badon (D)

William “Poppa” Gant (I)

Eugene Green (D)

Andrew Gressett (R)

Stacy Head (D)

Gary Coldewy Landrieu (D)

Norbert Rome (I)

Cynthia Willard-Lewis (D)

I will be working on a questionnaire to send to the candidates next month on issues that concern Nolatarians. My early pick is Stacy Head, just so we have the opportunity for a libertarian candidate to run to take her City Council District B seat later next year. By the way, if you live in District B and know a good candidate, please let us know!

Also on the ballot is Judge Herbert Cade’s empty seat in Civil District Court which will become section 1 of the Domestic Section. One familiar name is running;

Janet Ahern (D)

Bernadette D’Souza (D)

Kris Kiefer (D)

So there we have it. More later.
