MICHEL MARTIN, HOST: New Orleans made history last night. For the first time ever, the city has elected a woman as mayor - LaToya Cantrell. But Cantrell says that there are other big numbers that matter more. NPR’s Colin Dwyer reports.
米歇尔.马丁, 主持：昨晚新奥尔良创造了历史。该市破天荒第一次选举一位女性作为市长--拉托亚.坎特雷尔。坎特雷称除了上述情况外，还有其他更多紧要的事需要处理。NPR Colin Dwyer报道。
COLIN DWYER, BYLINE: Nearly 300 years - that’s how long the city’s been around. And not once has it had a woman for a chief executive. That long streak ended unofficially last month when both LaToya Cantrell and Desiree Charbonnet, a fellow Democrat, qualified for a runoff election. It was only a matter of whose name earned an entry in the history books. Well, Cantrell won that honor Saturday night with a commanding 60 percent of the vote. But in her victory speech at the New Orleans Jazz Market, she said the city has more important things to think about than just her place in history.
