Urging its readers to vote for LaToya, Gambit Weekly has endorsed LaToya Cantrell to be the next mayor of New Orleans. Gambit reported LaToya’s experience as a community leader in Post-Katrina New Orleans, accomplishments on the Council, and most notably her plan for delivering a safer and better New Orleans for all.
From Gambit: “New Orleans cannot afford a mayor who faces a learning curve. Our next mayor will have to hit the ground running on Day One…Given our city’s daunting challenges, we think New Orleanians will appreciate a mayor who sometimes finds it necessary to kick butt to get the job done — because being mayor of New Orleans is one of the toughest jobs in America.”
