Best local scandal

»1. Confederate monuments
The New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board screwed the pooch big time five days after the conclusion of this year's BONO voting. Which would have won in a one-to-one contest: the monuments or the S&WB? Who knows?

Best member of the Louisiana Legislature

»1. Helena Moreno
www.morenocampaign.com
Among some of the, uh, questionable voices in the Louisiana Legislature, state Rep. Helena Moreno, D-New Orleans, is often a voice of reason, intelligence and progressivism. She's the most visible elected official in Baton Rouge, advocating for issues affecting women, including sexual assault, equal pay and domestic violence, among others. Now she's running for New Orleans City Council At-Large.
