Retired City Judge, Penny Clute, the 2013 Mardi Gras North Queen will begin her ‘royal duties’ as Queen of the festivities that day. Her commitment over the years to mental health, whether as County District Attorney or City Court Judge, made her an ideal choice as this year’s Mardi Gras North Queen.
