Standing in Kenner’s Veterans Park, Mayor Ben Zahn rescinded his controversial anti-Nike policy Wednesday, four days after it erupted on social media and thrust Kenner into a national spotlight.

Zahn read a short statement and took a few questions in a brief appearance before assembled media, giving his first unscripted public comments since the memo enacting the policy became public.

Acting upon advice of the city attorney, I have rescinded my memorandum of Sept. 5,” he said. “That memorandum divided the city and placed Kenner in a false and unflattering light on the national stage.”

Poor Repug snowflake......
