Local Election Results

Local election results were as expected. Congressman Jefferson made the runoff against Karen Carter. Voters are left to decide between a liberal who is the target of a federal criminal investigation and an even more liberal challenger. Congressman Jindal easily won reelection. Voters statewide and in New Orleans approved the consolidation of the property tax assessors into one office, ending the geographical checks and balances on the incompetence and corruption of the assessors under the current system. The amendment to end the New Orleans motor vehicle property tax passed.
