Serpas signals no

This was a long shot rumor anyway.. I think.

Ronal Serpas is taking a pass on politics.

The former New Orleans Police Department superintendent, who was rumored to be considering a bid to challenge Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman in the fall, said Monday he would not be running.

"I am very happy here at Loyola University New Orleans," Serpas said in an email in which he flatly rejected a bid.

Serpas, who has never sought elected office, secured a tenured post as a "professor of practice" at Loyola shortly after Mayor Mitch Landrieu tossed him from the police chief's job in August 2014 after four tumultuous years.
Qualifying begins in a few days. Seems like nobody wants Gusman's job (such as it is right now.)  Hardly anybody wants to run for Mayor either, it seems.  More on that later.
