Commentary: The Gambit ballot 

Gambit's recommendations in the Oct. 14 elections

New Orleans is about to elect its first new mayor in eight years, along with at least three new City Council members and two judges. Also on ballots are Orleans Parish School Board millage renewals, a new council member for Jefferson Parish District 4, two transportation millage renewals in Jefferson, a statewide treasurer's race and three statewide constitutional amendments.

  Our recommendations are below. (As is our practice, we do not endorse in judicial races, due to a longstanding editorial belief that judges should be appointed rather than elected.) We urge all our readers to vote this Saturday.
