The Bureau of Governmental Research has released the second part of a four-part series of questionnaires completed by the candidates for New Orleans mayor.

The series is titled “Questions for a New Mayor.” This installment concerns city services. Part 1 dealt with the city budget. The questionnaire was sent to all candidates. Four candidates – Rob Couhig, John Georges, Mitch Landrieu and James Perry – responded.

The questions asked of the candidates on city services:

• City Hall is widely perceived as deeply dysfunctional. What is your plan for reversing the dysfunction and maximizing the performance and productivity of City Hall? Please describe your approach to service delivery and personnel management. Be sure to address
structural and managerial issues and reforms.

• What specific reforms would you make, if any, to increase competition, transparency and objective outcomes in professional services contracting? What role would you as the mayor have in the process, if any? What role would the Inspector General play, if any?
