State Sen. Karen Carter Peterson, who was mulling a run for mayor of New Orleans, has decided against the move, according to a Facebook post and a private text message she sent to some close friends.

Peterson ? who also is head of the state Democratic party, as well as*Vice Chair of Civic Engagement and Voter Participation of the Democratic National Committee*? had told Gambit last week that*?I?m doing all the due diligence that a serious potential candidate has to do" and promised a decision well before the end of qualifying July 14. That decision, it turns out, is no.

With nearly two decades in public service, Peterson was expected to be a strong candidate in a field that includes*former Judge Michael Bagneris, District B Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell, former Municipal Court Judge Desiree Charbonnet and businessman Frank Scurlock.?
