New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell is finally speaking out just five days after hundreds of protesters gathered outside of her Broadmoor home, demanding support for hospitality workers.
Mayor Cantrell issued a rebuke of their actions on Tuesday, saying they scared her daughter and should take their concerns to state lawmakers.
In an open letter Tuesday night, Cantrell praised the Black Lives Matter movement but condemned the New Orleans Hospitality Workers Alliance who used the movement's rallying cry to gather outside her home.
The organization said last week that Cantrell should redistribute money from the police department to provide sick pay for any privately employed worker who needs it.
