Should a mayor be treated different because of their race and gender?

The Democrat mayor, who faces a recall effort for rising crime and other issues, snapped at a reporter asking if she would reimburse the city for reportedly spending $30,000 on first-class ticket upgrades.

“Anyone who wants to question how I protect myself just doesn’t understand the world black women walk in,” Cantrell, who is the first woman to hold the office, said in a statement.

“My travel accommodations are a matter of safety, not of luxury,” she said. “As all women know, our health and safety are often disregarded and we are left to navigate alone. As the mother of a young child whom I live for, I am going to protect myself by any reasonable means in order to ensure I am there to see her grow into the strong woman I am raising her to be.”

The mayor flew first class to France and Switzerland and says she doesn’t need to reimburse the Big Easy despite city policy.

“All expenses incurred doing business on behalf of the city of New Orleans will not be reimbursed to the city of New Orleans,” Cantrell said. “One thing is clear; I do my job and I will continue to do it with distinction and integrity every step of the way.”
