By the time this publishes, New Orleans may have our actual, final list of contestants for your vote in this fall’s municipal election. At long last, we citizens will know who will appear on our ballots and which elected offices they are campaigning to hold. That will be news in and of itself after the will-he-or-won’t-she lead up to qualifying. I have this feeling we’re going to end up with a much more boring set of elections than usual, and the excitement is pretty much over at this point. At least the vibrant online rumor mill didn’t cost as much as the thousands of dollars for phone polling that some folks must have spent before they decided NOT to stand for election.
