District A

For all of Shelly Midura's shortcomings as a stateswoman, she ended up being the only real progressive voice on Council and pushed for criminal justice reform, environmental sustainability, and was an important Entergy watchdog.

She was engaged and accessible and so was her staff.

Fmr. Councilman Jay Batt is going to be running for his old seat again and is already being called the frontrunner.

When Shelly Midura beat him in 2006, Batt had a campaign warchest of over $1 million.

Midura had maybe a third of that.

Batt lost anyway and he'll lose again this time too.

His act is way out of style.

Correction: Midura had 15% of the campaign funds that Batt did.
