2021 would’ve marked NOMTOC’s parent organization, The Krewe of Jugs, 70th year of operation. They formed in 1951 but it took them nearly 20 years before the city would allow them to roll for Mardi Gras.
It’s no secret that California-native New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell is going to cancel 2021 Mardi Gras in the Crescent City. The only question is when. As a lame duck mayor with no possibility of reelection Cantrell is free to do as she pleases with zero political liability.
Could a move back home to California be in Cantrell’s future when her term expires in January 2022?
Has a modern day mayor ever been as politically toxic as Latoya Cantrell?
Perhaps a political scientist can weigh in in the comments section.
Oh, and we’ll plan on seeing y’all on the prairies of Acadiana for Mardi Gras in February 2021.
