WWL’s Tommy Tucker: LaToya Cantrell is UNnaturally N’Awlins
quote:

New Orleans is a special place. We that have been here all of our lives know that. A lot of it doesn’t make sense. Some of it is backwards. We cause a lot of our own troubles. But we love it because it’s OUR nonsense, OUR backwardness, OUR trouble. And we’re in it TOGETHER.

When it comes to the Crescent City, you either get it or you don’t. I’m not sure LaToya Cantrell gets it.


quote:

This morning I spoke with Leo Watermeier with Friends of Armstrong Park about the Mayor’s plan to move City Hall to the Municipal Auditorium. It’s been scaled back, but it’s still floating. During the interview Leo told me he’d told the mayor at one point that she “didn’t get New Orleans.” She didn’t react well, but I think he’s right.

LaToya Cantrell's communication with the residents of Treme has not been good. For that matter, her whole method of communicating with the city is questionable. Her preferred method is to be heard only on WBOK, a historically black radio station. She was willing to come on WWL up until a certain point then pulled the plug. I don’t know why.

The last time she came on she was in studio with me, and we hugged it out when she arrived and before she left. Then…nothing.

I think that is an indication of Cantrell being Unnaturally New Orleans. She fails to realize that issues facing the city affect ALL New Orleanians, and she has a responsibility to communicate with EVERYONE. Her exclusivity with WBOK seems rather Californiaesque to me…where the sides are clearly drawn. New Orleans isn’t like that. We, as New Orleanians, are all in this together when the streets flood and as crime soars.


quote:

New Orleans has been here long before LaToya Cantrell and will be here long after. Instead of trying to make the city like into Los Angeles South, she needs to be faithful to the traditions and cultures that make us US. Madame Mayor, close your mouth and open your eyes and ears. Fix what’s broken but don’t please don’t try to make the city into what you and you alone think it should be. You may never be “naturally N’awlins” but you can become less “unnaturally N’awlins”.

How long has she been in charge and still says the name of the city like some out of towner?

Willy Nagin’s “Chocolate City” has turned into a Payday for nuts like Destroyah.

what will happen first, Tommy Tucker's dismissal or his apology?

It seems that WWL Radio is finally getting it...

So far this week Scoot, Newell Normand and now Tommy Tucker have all called her out.

She is in over her head and too proud and stubborn to admit she doesn't know how to fix the problems. Hopefully some day, the voters will take the first step by showing her the door. They deserve and can do a lot better.

The last 3 times I flew out of MSY that dumb broad was still on the speakers saying ”laissez bon temps rouler" it sounded stupid. Never once heard it said without the le in there. Just bothered the shite out of me.

Wonder how many takes it took to get her to that point. Please for the love of God have someone run that actually loves the city.

No matter how many times I see a photo of her, I still can't get past how unbelievably ugly she is. God almighty...

I agree she sucks, but does anyone really believe that the New Orleans electorate (white and black combined) will ever elect someone who is practical or competent?
The mayor's office has been in a spiral since Chep Morrison left office (that was 1961).
