Thank you for voting on Constitutional Amendments #6 and #8. While Constitutional Amendment #6 received over 76% of the vote in Orleans Parish, it was not enough for statewide passage, failing with only 49.7% of Louisiana voters voting “For,” and 50.3% voting “Against.”
If it passed, Constitutional Amendment #6 would have provided some protection to New Orleans homeowners from large assessment increases due to changes in the real estate market. I again thank New Orleans for their resounding votes on this initiative.
Constitutional Amendment #8, which provides for a permanent freeze for persons with permanent disability passed statewide with 54.7% of Louisiana voters voting in favor. This was due in no small part to New Orleans voters casting 67% of their ballots in “For” this proposition.
Thank you again for voting on November 8, 2022. I would also like to thank Rep. Matthew Willard for authoring Constitutional Amendments #6 and #8, as well as Reps. Hilferty, and Landry and Sen. Bouie for their efforts in support of these items in the legislature.
PLEASE BE REMINDED: In 2023 there will be a 5 mill property tax rate increase for Early Childcare and Education. This tax increase passed with 61% of the vote, while turnout was only 9.3%. Please know that your vote DOES count.
