Council-at-Large Runoff - Candidate Interviews

The runoff election for Council-at-Large is Saturday, March 15.  It’s important: The winner will lead our city and our neighborhood through the next four years. Vieux Carré Property Owners, Residents and Associates (VCPORA), and French Quarter Citizens (FQC) interviewed all the Council-at-Large  candidates before the primary, and we are publishing below the interview summaries of the runoff candidates, Cynthia Hedge-Morrell and Jason Williams.

Our purpose in distributing these summaries is to provide information to our members and beyond to give you deeper insight into the candidates’ views. As nonprofit 501(c ) 3 organizations, neither VCPORA nor FQC makes any endorsement in elections.

Please keep in mind that we did our best to capture the statements and positions of the candidates, but what follows are summaries.  We encourage you to review the candidates’ campaign materials, attend forums and other presentations, and, if possible, talk to the candidates themselves.
