New Orleans Mayor addresses automated traffic enforcement transparency concerns from the public and City Council

After getting called out for a lack of transparency in her administration, Mayor Latoya Cantrell responded to critics Friday (April 12).

From stricter enforcement on traffic cameras, delays on the new airport terminal, and a trip to Cuba, some city council members feel the mayor’s office is keeping them out of the loop.

“It’s surprising, I can tell you that the council members I’ve been speaking to is the notice we just received is the first notice, so it’s a surprise. Obviously, disappointing,” Councilmember-At-Large Helena Moreno said.

The mayor denies these accusations.

“I absolutely keep individuals in the loop. If you want to know something, you can just ask me, and I check my own email, and I have not received any questions directly as to someone not receiving adequate information,” Cantrell said.
