CLEAR AND DECISIVE VICTORY FOR BROOME IN WBRZ MAYORAL DEBATE

White Reiterates Divisive Record; Broome Shines As Best Candidate to Unite East Baton Rouge

 

BATON ROUGE, LA — Wrapping up only minutes ago, it is clear that Sharon Weston Broome handily won the WBRZ mayoral debate.  As citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish come together to choose their next leader on December 10, questions of traffic congestion, educational opportunities, and the divisive “St. George” proposal were discussed thoroughly.  Voters saw a leader in Sharon Weston Broome, who was clearly prepared to confront the issues facing the Capitol Area head on, honestly and truthfully.

Stephen Handwerk, Executive Director released the following statement:

 “Senator Broome showed the Greater Capitol Region tonight exactly what we need from our next Mayor-President — a leader who is present, addresses problems factually and logically, and who brings people together. No matter how hard that task may seem, Senator Broome is clearly the only candidate who can find common ground and make progress for East Baton Rouge Parish.

“As we have seen in the past year, when a community is shaken to its core with shootings, floods, budget struggles, hospital closures, and more – there is something worse than an absent leader.  That is a leader who seeks first to divide.  While some can poke fun at this seriously out-of-touch politician, we know that this community faces big challenges in front of us.  We need a leader who is just as serious.  We need Sharon Weston Broome.”
