Analysis: Site traffic on Slabbed spells trouble for PSC incumbent Skrmetta

Slabbed third most popular hyperlink as I write this (h/t to Google) is actually a post tag:

RINOS run amuk these days in Jefferson Parish (Updated)

And the results:

Eric Skrmetta, Forest Wright headed to runoff in Public Service Commission race ~ Jennifer Larino

In the end the RINO tag meant less in this race than the barrage of bad publicity received by Skrmetta. The Google searches for Wright, far and away Slabbed most searched name these past two weeks, can’t be good news for Skrmetta, who came in a close second in yesterday’s runoff.

Speaking of the RINOs mentioned in that old post, Monique Lafontaine came in a close third in the First Parish Court race, which is going to a runoff between the highly politically connected Johnny Lee and Pat Rooney.

It appears the women of Harahan did not get the memo.

Of note is long time Harahan revolving doorman, Vinny Mosca also lost last night in his bid to revolve back onto the City Council after completing a financially disastrous tenure as Mayor.

Waveland School Board Trustee race indicates voters want change

And based upon several back stories I have been told about how the powers that be tried forcing the challengers out of the race it appears the entrenched political interest will be going down kicking and screaming:

Most incumbents hold onto positions; no clear winner in school board races ~ Geoff Belcher

I have been informed that today that the third place finisher in the BWSD School Trustee race, Keith Marquar, has already endorsed challenger Mike Bell, who received more votes in Waveland yesterday than any other candidate on the municipal ballot.

For some of the reasons that Waveland voters want change, interested readers can click here and here.

Slabbed has been told that candidates are already lining up to face School Board President Sherry Ponder next year.
