What are your thoughts on New Orleans having its first white mayor in more than 30 years?


Anthony Hingle

“If we can have a black president, New Orleans can have a white mayor.”

“It’s time for change, especially the way times are now. People thought that just because Ray Nagin is African-American, he would work for African-Americans. I feel that we don’t have to have a mayor with the same skin as us to represent us.”



Michael Veal

New Orleans

“I don’t think it’ll hit me until I see him do something for New Orleans.”
