Scott McKay is out this week, but Brian Haldane sits down with Metro Councilman John Delgado to talk about running for Mayor. The bulk of the conversation is on economic development and Councilman Delgado’s vision for Baton Rouge. Brian asks John to “armchair quarterback” Mayor Holden’s performance in a number of different areas that are of vital importance to the city. They talk about crime, education, and go into how the Mayor handled the Alton Sterling shooting.
Brian also asks Delgado about his battle ahead in the race. Namely, how does he “reconcile with the people he has pissed off?” Councilman Delgado has grown a reputation of saying some bombastic things, and Haldane asks him point blank how he plans to go back and ask for the votes of people he has called “The Baton Rouge Taliban.”
They also talk a little campaign strategy, and dive into who Councilman Delgado feels is his main competition.
