NOLA Residents Dissatisfied With Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s Efforts

The embattled mayor’s alarmingly high disapproval rating includes residents who are unhappy with how she’s handling crime.

A recent survey conducted for the New Orleans Crime Coalition highlight’s the public’s continued discontent with Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s leadership.

Cantrell’s current 59% disapproval rating comes as she finds herself embroiled in a series of controversies like her personal use of the city-owned Upper Pontalba apartment and her frequent taxpayer-funded travels outside the city.

The New Orleans City Council voted to oust Cantrell this year if she failed to vacate the Upper Pontalba unit and remove personal belongings by a specified date. Council Vice President J.P. Morrell, who sponsored the eviction motion, accused the mayor of “skirting the law.”

Fox 8 also noted the federal investigation into Mayor Cantrell’s relationship with former security officer Jeffrey Vappie. As Dr. Robert Collins, a political analyst at Dillard University, stated, “The public takes all of those issues into account…Plus, they’re unhappy with the fact that they don’t feel like their city services are being delivered in an efficient manner.”
