in contrast, several seasoned politicians and a couple of political newcomers (but not new runners) rushed to the open Louisiana State House District 93 Seat a few months ago. James Perry and Helena Moreno rose to the top of a wide field of candidates and will duke it out in next week's runoff. now that the stakes are high, the kid gloves have come off and both candidates are going for the jugular, exposing the relative faults of their opponent.
the gambit, local weekly paper (the smart and reliable alternative to the time-pic) recently posted it's endorsement in the District 93 race.
Voters in House District 93 will choose a new state representative on Saturday, May 29. The district contains the economic nerve center of Louisiana — most of the French Quarter, all of theand Warehouse District, the port, the Convention Center, the Louisiana and New Orleans Arena, the new /VA hospital project, and the mainstays of the city’s tourism and restaurant industries.
The two remaining candidates are housing advocate James Perry and former newscaster Helena Moreno. In their runoff campaigns, the candidates have brought forth disturbing accusations against one another, and recent revelations about both cause us to take no position in this race. That this race has come down to two seriously flawed candidates is a shame, considering the economic importance of this district.
