Three of the major announced candidates for mayor — Michael Bagneris, LaToya Cantrell and Desiree Charbonnet — have committed to a town hall June 17 hosted by the group Indivisible NOLA. The town hall will focus on three municipal topics selected by Indivisible NOLA, with questioners on each topic drawn by lot. The event takes place at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of New Orleans (2903 Jefferson Ave.) and begins at 10:30 a.m. (doors will open at 10 a.m.). It’s open to the public, but seating is limited and is strictly first-come first-serve. A Facebook page for the event is here
Qualifying for the New Orleans mayoral race will take place July 12-14. The primary will be held Oct. 14, with a runoff (if necessary) Nov. 18.
