Mayor Sharon Weston Broome Campaign Announces Endorsement by Community Leader Byron Sharper

Baton Rouge LA - The Mayor Sharon Weston Broome campaign today announced the endorsement of Byron Sharper. Sharper is a former Metro-Councilperson and was an opponent of Mayor Broome in the 2016 campaign.

“Four years ago I ran for Mayor not against Mayor Broome but to bring to the forefront issues that were of concern for North Baton Rouge. I wholeheartedly endorse Mayor Broome’s reelection today because she has demonstrated a commitment to working on those issues over the past 3 plus years.” Sharper said.

Sharper mentioned expansion of healthcare services in North Baton Rouge and Mayor Broome’s successful actions to redevelop the area as well as efforts to eliminate the food desert in parts of the parish.

“The issues I highlighted in 2016 are the issues Mayor Broome has worked on successfully in the past few years. I look forward to working with her and the administration to continue to make progress for the parish.” Sharper said.

“I’m delighted to have the support of Byron. We’ve worked together over the past few years to close the gaps that have existed in North Baton Rouge for families and small businesses. We are making real progress but there is more work to be done. I look forward to continuing to work with him and members of the community to bring economic and health equality to everyone in the parish,” Mayor Broome added.

Mayor Sharon Weston Broome was elected in 2016 and she will be a candidate for a second term on the November ballot.

Election Day is set for Tuesday, November 3rd.
