FOX 8 sits down with New Orleans mayoral candidate Latoya Cantrell

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Latoya Cantrell and Desiree Charbonnet both want to make history and become the city's first female mayor.

Whoever wins the Nov. 18 runoff will inherit a city that still faces serious problems.

FOX 8's Sabrina Wilson sat down with both candidates for long form interviews on their platforms.

She questioned the candidates about crime, economic development, the Sewerage and Water Board, and how they would avoid patronage, remain independent, create more affordable housing, and the recent attacks  over how they spent taxpayer funds, etc.
