House District 91: Carling Dinkler
The contest to succeed term-limited state Rep. Walt Leger III has attracted a field of excellent candidates. We give the nod to Carling Dinkler based on his neighborhood and civic involvement as well as his experience in the public sector, both in Washington (where he worked for seven years as a congressional aide) and as a member of the city’s Historic District Landmarks Commission. Professionally, he serves a vice president at Enhanced Capital, advocating nationally for programs that encourage investment in low-income communities, small businesses, affordable housing, and restoration of historically significant buildings. His legislative priorities will be greater investments in infrastructure and early childhood education, pay equity, and raising the minimum wage. We recommend Carling Dinkler for representative in House District 91.
