Mitch Landrieu will re-enter New Orleans Mayor's race 2010
As you well know I have a number of sources in the new orleans political scene and one of my best sources is a relative of mine, he tells me that Mitch Landrieu might get back in the 2010 new orleans mayor's race. I spoke with lawyer Trevor Bryan recently when I bumped into him at St.Lukes Episcopal church on N. Dorgenois where retiring Right Reverand Bishop Charles Jenkins performed a special baptism ceremony for Trevor's grandson and my nephew also named Trevor in Treme, he tells me that Mitch is thinking about getting back in the race for New Orleans mayor. Trevors been a key player behind the scenes for many years now down in New Orleans,using his Harvard degree to build a small legal empire at one point, most notable for helping William Jefferson's machine get a foot hold start in New Orleans politics. It makes a lot of sense considering the slow start to the mayor's race and the weak crop of candidates who have little to no money to get a real campaign going. Mitch was left with a bad taste in his mouth when Nagin came from behind to win the last time Mitch ran for mayor but if Mitch can connect with this new progressive movement going on in New Orleans that Trevor is helping to create he will have a good chance. Oh yeah my pick for the new Bishop is Reverand Paul Johnson.
