Four Votes

I don’t remember doing anything productive this afternoon before heading to work at WVUE. This evening, we did a special, hour-long election show. We had several live remotes from various camps and John Snell solo anchored in studio. There were no races in New Orleans but several in the surrounding area. Primarily, the interest was the Mandeville, Kenner and Slidell mayor’s races. The Mandeville mayor’s race in which about 2,600 votes were cast was decided by a margin of just four votes.We went off the air just after 10. The results were in and apparent a lot sooner than most newsroom people would have guessed. A lot of the drama was concluded before we went on the air at nine.
