Relevant issues

In a candidate forum on January 8, 2014, challengers Bagneris and King criticized incumbent Landrieu for failing to do more for the city's poor. King said, "Right now, there are two cities, the city of the haves and the city of the have-nots." Landrieu countered by citing programs he had initiated in his first term as mayor, arguing that under his leadership the city had seen hundreds of jobs come to the city and the razing of thousands of dilapidated structures.[5]

More specifically, Bagneris and King challenged Landrieu for awarding a significant development contract to a firm that, they argued, had failed to comply with the city's Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program. This program compels companies seeking public contracts to include a 35 percent participation level from disadvantaged businesses (often, those owned and operated by women or minorities). Landrieu insisted that the contract would not be allowed to move forward unless the firm complied with the program's requirements.[5]

Fundraising

As of December 23, 2013, King reported $2,416 on hand for his mayoral campaign.[6][7]
