A discussion of Ron Forman as mayor of New Orleans Home      SiteMap

Replies/Comments to : Campaign Notes

Don't you think that we should be nervous that the business community would raise over a million dollars for Ron Forman's campaign without him even trying? Don't we all expect he will do whatever they want? Isn't this why the business community is dumping Nagin and skipping Mitch Landrieu and Peggy Wilson? Does anybody really think this blank-check campaign is a good thing?

Ron will represent them, not average voters, if they are the ones responsible for putting him in office. After all, the media is suggesting that his campaign money is the greatest source of his campaign strength, so he'll owe the donors big time.

Not really. I'd be far more worried about a mayor who scares businesses away.

I dont think that 'Just Wondering' was even saying that being a businessman is a 'bad thing' - he was more talking about being a politician who is beholden to the wealthy business interests who paid to get him into office.

And if you dont think that that might be a bad thing, then you havent been paying much attention to the Bush administration for starters...

Amen "Just Wandering"! Without the businessmen, who are we supposed to rely on to help jumpstart our floundering economy? The government????? We all know how that's been working for us lately! The last time I checked, the businessmen provide the jobs, benefits, industry, etc. for our "average voters".... oh, and let's not forget about paychecks! I will RUN from a candidate who doesn't receive support from the business community. Since when did being a "businessman" become a bad thing? Do people not realize that the clear and present danger to our city (besides not re-building the levees) is that our businessmen might pack up and leave? Exactly where would that leave us? I don't know about you, but the paycheck for this "average voter" is not signed by another "average voter".

What exactly constitutes an "average voter"?

Your attacks against Mr. Forman are just not fair...Republicans have done alot for this city as evidenced in their swift and prompt response to our needs...well, on second thought, perhaps AI should move to Mississippi where there has been a quick and prompt response....too rash...have been associating "businessmen" with skill...like a panacea...there are good ones, and there are bad ones, and there are clever ones and I just discovered that not all businessmen are Republicans...gee, I am confused. All I know is that I am being overcharged for concessions at the zoo...that's why I have to sneak my cold drink in there!

You bet the attacks on Mr. Forman are not fair or balanced. When recently asked about the problem of the increase in local crime, he went right for the throat and said that the origin of urban violence is at the family level. So, if you are threatened, in a mugging situation, you tell that mugger to go talk to his mother. Thank you Ron for your insight!!
