"Our state and parish election officials go to great lengths to protect the integrity of the voting process and the public’s confidence in elections. We are confident in the results of Saturday night, and confident that a recount will only serve to reconfirm what we already know -- that the voters of District 'C' are ready for a change in leadership.
"Nadine Ramsey may not like the results, but the people’s voice was heard loud and clear.
"Councilmember-Elect Gisleson Palmer remains focused on the hard work ahead of dealing with the long unaddressed issues for the people of District ‘C.’”
