Four incumbents and one challenger are among the six candidates for Metro Council to win the endorsement of FuturePAC, the political action committee of the Baton
Rouge Area Chamber, according to a news release issued Monday.
The incumbents include Donna Collins-Lewis in District 6, C. Denise Marcelle in District 7, Joel Boé in District 9 and Tara Wicker in District 10, the release says.
The group endorsed John Delgado over incumbent Rodney “Smokie” Bourgeois in the District 12 race.
Chauna Banks-Daniel, one of eight candidates vying for the District 2 seat being vacated by Ulysses “Bones” Addison, also earned the FuturePAC’s endorsement. Addison is term limited.
FuturePAC “actively supports candidates and issues that promote economic development” in the capital region, according to the release.
