AFL-CIO Endorsements


  Exactly whom is the Greater New Orleans AFL-CIO endorsing in the District B City Council race between incumbent Stacy Head and electrical engineer and pastor Corey Watson? Head has the labor organization's endorsement listed prominently on her campaign Web site, while Watson sent out an email blast last week trumpeting his selection by the group. Turns out it was an endorsement of both candidates by the AFL-CIO, which did not return Gambit's calls for comment by press time. Both Watson and Head are steadily racking up other endorsements as well. Watson has been endorsed by Clerk of Court Dale Atkins and Civil Sheriff Paul Valteau Jr., as well as the Orleans Parish Democratic Executive Committee. Head's endorsements include the Orleans Parish Republican Executive Committee, the Alliance for Good Government and the Forum for Equality. The primary is Feb. 6. — Kevin Allman
