Gissel endorses Sharon Weston Broome for Mayor-President
BATON ROUGE – Former independent Mayoral candidate and businessman Darryl Gissel says he’s endorsing Sharon Weston Broome for mayor.
Gissel made the announcement alongside Weston Broome Wednesday morning outside his downtown Baton Rouge office.
“If we are going to serve the needs of our whole community, it is essential that we elect a Mayor-President who is an inclusive and unifying leader,” Gissel said. “That is why I ran for Mayor-President, and that is why I am today endorsing Sharon Weston Broome for the job of Mayor-President.”
Last week, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards endorsed Weston Broome, touting her leadership during the governor’s transition team. Edwards joined other top state Democrat leaders to endorse Weston Broome, including Congressman Cedric Richmond, former Senator Mary Landrieu, and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu.
The runoff election is set to Saturday, December 10. The winner of the election replaces Kip Holden who is term-limited.
