The election of Mitch as mayor with 66% of the vote was a landslide. In the election map completed for NolaStat (3 MB PDF), its clear that Mitch won every precinct except for one near Lake Catherine where Georges picked up 12 votes to get the majority. The attached map clearly shows that Mitch won support from a broad base of voters, who sent a signal that we wont allow our diversity to be turned against us as a weapon to destroy our dreams. We are stronger when we work together toward shared goals.
The map is a large download, and really comprehensive. Thanks to Brian and NolaStat for compiling it.
