Two election recommendations

Vote no on the expensive criminal justice proposition. Some of the improvements are needed, but that's not enough reason to approve a poorly vetted proposal.

Ignore the Picayune's endorsement of Keith Pittman's wife. The fact that a former aide to a convicted councilman became a businessman with the connections to get a city contract with a price 62 percent higher than the lowest bid the city received isn't incriminating. I wouldn't even rule out voting for the spouse of such a businessman in a runoff against a truly objectionable opponent, but certainly not in a primary with five candidates. I'm trying to find out if either Pittmann has any connection to Fulton Johnson Newman & Pittman Insurance which does business with the city and contributes to the mayor's fundraising efforts, but I can't tell from the firm's corporate filing.
