The 2002 City of New Orleans Mayoral Race: A Historical Review

Just a review to remember how we got where we are today with Ray Nagin as the Mayor of New Orleans. In review of this data, I don't recall Nagin beating Pennington in the runoff by nearly 20% . . . The race was a much closer one in my memory. I did remember, however, that Troy Carter did surprisingly bad in the primary only getting 10% of the vote.

In my opinion, minus the MLK Day speech I think Nagin maybe not necessarily have had a cakewalk in the upcoming election, but certainly I think easily had the upper hand towards winning it. The MLK speech opened the door for viable competition to step up and vie for the mayorship whom I think likely would have passed otherwise (i.e. Mitch Landrieu). I voted for Nagin both times in 2002, but he lost me--and I wasn't even critical of his handling of the immediate post-KTMB days. Nagin may very well be able to win again, but would it have been much easier for him without the MLK Day "chocolate city" controversy (to which I believe and admit was taken out of context thanks to the eight second television-friendly sound byte treatment of that speech)? Or will the "chocolate city" affair actually ensure Nagin wins by galvanizing the black vote (whom he didn't really win over in the 2002 election) and disregarding the white vote (that will be split primarily by Landrieu, Forman, and Couhig) that secured the election for him in 2002?????

I still don't understand the "out of context" or "off the cuff"(you don't make that one)excuses for the MLK speech. It was the last straw for me, not because it was insensitive, but because it was planned in reaction to the fact that his main opposition would be white. It wasn't a speech given as a mayor,but a speech given as a candidate. Instead of addressing the fears of the displaced, he sought to exploit them. And people act like he was surprised to find himself in front of a microphone at an occasion where the mayor always gives a speech. Just a reminder, the chocolate city speech (NOT REMARKS, as some persist in saying) made everyone ignore the speeches given by black activists earlier in the day calling him a sell out to the white power structure for changing the parade route. Actually, we seem to be pretty much on the same page, except for the premeditateness of the speech and I think that it helped rather than hurt his chances. Great speech for a candidate, irresponsible speech for a mayor. Sorry to ramble, but that missing aspect of the reaction to the speech still makes my blood boil.

I've talked to Republican friends who've finally started to admit that it was wrong to re-elect a president who so clearly put being re-elected ahead of governing; I don't see any difference with the mayor and it became obvious on MLK day.

He pissed me off with the "Chocolate City" thing, but he didn't lose me until the "they don't look like us" comment, combined with his lame explanation of it during the first debate. He's a pathetic panderer.

Nice picture of him with Jesse Jackson yesterday on the front of the Times-Pic. Nagin's hanging with Jesse? C. Ray changed parties to run for mayor. He's no liberal.

C. Ray believes in C. Ray.

連上5~6天班,其實這都只是「借明天的時間與身體」,往往這周上六天,下週身體狀況撐不住就休一週,相對酒店收入並沒有提高,反而身體搞壞、且充滿負面情緒。 「細水長流」才是在酒店兼差穩定增加收入的最佳方式,而我們比照20年來的大數據,也是如此。若是真的急須用錢酒店薪資與身體狀況許可,是可以和店家協調「加班」(在沒有欠班下,如坐完1桌就下班等),在八大潛規則只要【事前】協調都可以談,因為「制度是僵固的,人是靈活的!」13.午場的時段和限制,以及優缺點為何!? 會選擇上午場的姐妹們,許多是為了照顧小孩或避開家人、男友的疑慮。店家開設午場原因: 分攤晚場的營運成本(如房租和水電費用) 避免客人和業績幹部的流動(客人會因故提早消費,怕流失到其他店的午場)因此午場可以說是附屬,各店還是以晚場為經營主力。為何午場的生意只是晚場的2~3成呢?! 一般商務客於5點下班,7~8點用完晚餐,大約9點到店內消費(這是最單純的消費客層) 下午的客人,可以說相對酒店當日領特別(就如同妳不會凌晨2點去超市買菜一樣... 就是怪!!)所以午場的生意量較少(收入也可能是晚場的2~3成)。一般午場的時段為何? 下午3~9或4~10或5~11(最少要上6小時)註: 必須把最後一桌坐完(例如客人7點進場消費到10點半 妳要坐到該客人離場,不能中途卡檯) 若堅持9點離開公司,則有些店家於7~8點左右就不會安排妳看檯(對收入有很大影響) 門禁:有些店家或客人,會接受公關於9點不論理由可止檯、且直接下班。 許多公關彈性選擇「午場跨晚場」加班(一星期加班晚場2~3天,該桌結束後,可隨時下班),好增加節數。14.租套房在店家附近,還是通勤呢?!在北部以妳住基隆或桃園,想在台北酒店工作酒店薪水為例:為了適應新環境,先通勤試上幾天後,再決定下一步。先別急著找房子,初期兩 ~三週先通車,先有收入,不適應馬上換店。確定好店家後,短期不會換店,再從周邊開始找房。台北精華區小套房,有管理員且環境尚可,月租落在2.2萬左右,首月房租+2個月押金,需要6.6萬。店家每月定期開會(晚上7點左右),不定期舉辦活動(提早作造型準備)。租屋雖然比基隆、桃園貴一點,但扣除交通費其實是差不多。加上我們日夜顛倒與喝酒,所以更須要睡眠。結論:先通勤再租屋。15.為什麼許多人會選擇經紀公司!! 『演藝圈經紀人 : 規劃演藝人員各式各樣的演藝事業,能成就其發光發熱!』『酒店業經紀人 : 規劃酒店姐妹在安全有尊嚴的環境中,賺到錢進而改善生活!』目前市場上有眾多經紀人,但素質良莠不齊,負面消息不斷,以下是酒店公關藝名經紀公司應有的條件: 有能見度與知名度。 有五年以上的酒店經紀經驗。 和各店家保持良好互動關係。 旗下經紀人,必須不開桌消費、不賭博、不碰危禁品。 24小時輪班待命,酒店經紀人需要隨時處理各式突發狀況和臨場反映。 網路世代,起碼要有像樣的官方網站,並非只有免費的部落格與臉書。經紀公司能幫妳處理
