NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Mayor-elect Latoya Cantrell was a no-show at a press conference scheduled Monday to celebrate the third anniversary of the city's smoking ban.

Cantrell was to speak at the event in Central City, but she got stuck in a transition meeting, according to an event organizer. She was instrumental in pushing for the smoking ban before the full City Council passed it into law three years ago.

Last week, Cantrell didn't show up at a press conference held by her transition team.
