NEW ORLEANS - Election campaigns are grueling marathons, but Danatus King said meeting voters is an energizing experience.

"A real positive response, and as you can see, the people are eager," King said. "They're not only eager for change, they're eager, they're watching the debates, they have done their homework."

King said he will keep working until the polls close to get his key message out to voters.

"We're all in this together, we can't neglect any part of our city, we can't neglect any part of our citizenry, all of us have to pull together, and when we all pull together, all of us do better," King said.

"I feel great," said Mitch Landrieu. "It's been a great campaign, I've really enjoyed it. You just get out and talk to as many people as you can, and you hope for the best tomorrow."

Landrieu's message to voters is to continue down the path started four years ago.

"Four years ago when we took over the City was going in the wrong direction," said Landrieu. "We brought people together, we've gotten a huge amount done. We still have a long way to go, and we don't want to leave anybody behind."

"We're doing the intersections with the signs, but at the same time, the young folks are going ahead and they're doing Facebook and Twitter," said Michael Bagneris.

Michael Bagneris would make changes in city government, and push economic development.

"We have to get rid of this police chief, and get back our 400 officers that we lost," said Bagneris. "We're going to have a more robust economy."

All three men have worked hard to get their message out, but now the big decision is up to you, to choose who will occupy the second floor office in City Hall for the next four years.
