Relevant issues

In a candidate form taking place on January 8, 2014, Bagneris criticized incumbent Landrieu for failing to do more to help the city's poor. 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. Bagneris also criticized Landrieu for his handling of a development contract awarded to a firm that, Bagneris argued, had failed to comply with the city's Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program. The program stipulates that companies must include a 35 percent participation level from disadvantaged businesses (often, those owned 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, Bagneris reported having a total of $219,025 at his disposal in advance of the February 1, 2014 primary. Between December 13, 2013 and December 23, 2013, Bagneris managed to raise more than $170,000. He has also contributed $50,000 of his personal money to his campaign.[6][7]

Endorsements

Bagneris has been endorsed in his bid for mayor by the Orleans Parish Democratic Executive Committee and the Black Organization of Leadership Development.[5][8]
