|1. Do you feel like the wages for municipal employees, such as the NOFD and EMS are adequate, and if not, how do you propose raising them?
||No, wages for municipal employees are too low. As a member of the New Orleans City Council, I voted to have all city contract employees to earn a livable wage by 2024. I am committed to work with the Mayor to increase direct city employees to earn a livable wage. |
|2. Will you support an ordinance to establish an independent external evaluation of the Ethics Review Board as called for in the Charter? Please explain your answer.

|3. In your role as the regulatory body for Entergy, what factors would you consider to increase rates?
