Run-offs, taxes & exemptions, oh my. With senate & congressional seats, as well as a variety of propositions & millages up in the air and scheduled for a vote tomorrow, Dec. 6th – the fur is flying in NOLA!
And last week, Airlift Productions and yours truly gave two of New Orleans most prominent voices a soapbox … and a microphone.
Contracted & hired by the LeBlanc & Schuster team, I vacuumed-up the red carpet and warmed-up the mics to record & produce radio ads with both Mayor Mitch Landrieu and NOLA City Council Chief Stacy Head.
Long-time political lightning rods for change – and controversy – I found both the Mayor & Ms. Head in-person to be engaging, warm and sincere folks. Even fun. (Stacy even brought daughter Charlotte to the recording session.)
Give a LISTEN to the radio spots now airing on WWL & WNOE radio (and yes, yours truly was tagged to perform the tag at the tail) being heard today all over New Orleans airwaves …
** Mayor Landrieu addresses NOLA School Millage issues **
** NOLA Council President Stacy Head adds her ‘two cents’ **
Post-Katrina New Orleans is without question still rife with it’s own share of thorny, prickly issues. Our job on this day was to tackle the upcoming vote on school maintenance and it’s attendant school millage proposals.
As a long-time political atheist, I personally do not have a dog in any donkey-elephant hunt and remain more neutral than the Swiss … and yet watch the fur fly from the sidelines with rapt attention and curiosity.
But as the fur and the dust settle the day after tomorrow and the votes are tallied and issues decided – and whether you vote or not – remember the time honored definition of the word ‘experience’: Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
