Six candidates have filed to run in the May 1 election for the District 93 seat left vacant by Karen Carter Peterson’s election to the state Senate, according to Secretary of State Jay Dardenne’s office.
The candidates are Louis Charbonnet III, Rhodesia Jackson Douglas, Carlos J. Hornbrook, Helena Moreno, James Perry and Thomas Robichaux. All six are Democrats.
The district primarily represents the Central Business District, French Quarter and Mid City, but a portion in the Garden District (east of Toledano between St. Charles and Constance) abuts the Uptown. None of the candidates filed using Garden District addresses.
Qualifying ended April 1. Early voting runs from 8:30 a.m to 6 p.m. April 17 to 24, except Sunday. A runoff will be held May 29, if necessary.
