Ashley writes another excellent post and Jay Batt still sucks.
If this guy wins again it is the fault of the people in that District. You need to rally the troops people. Lets get slimy people like Batt out of office and have City Council Reps that act like servants of their constituents rather than bosses who know what is best for us and our neighborhoods.

Oh, and Jay, what about da supermarket you promised on Carrollton? All I see at da Canal Villere is a roach coach, albeit one with damn fine tacos.
You in da quatah don’t want any new hotels? Well dat ain’t good for bidness. Not for da bidness of Batt’s developer friends, anyway. So what if the quarter isn’t even his district? Bidness is bidness, bitches.
The slippery eel that is Jay Batt does indeed mean business.
Link to the Anybody but Batt site and a quote:
City Councilman Jay Batt folded in the face of the “prominent citizens” who have their children at Stuart Hall School for Boys on Carrollton Avenue by allowing the school to demolish 5 houses in the Carrollton neighborhood surrounding the school, over the objections of more than a thousand neighbors. While Batt tried to excuse his actions by claiming that he "cared more about education than buildings", the fact remains that the planned $6.3 million expansion of a commercial operation into a residential neighborhood was and remains inappropriate, and Stuart Hall's millions would have been better spent elsewhere... such as a few short blocks away where an empty public school building sat on its own city block, languishing for attention.
