In his annual State of the City address at the Civic Theater in the Central Business District, Mayor Landrieu marked the progress the city has made over the last seven years in housing, NOPD reform, crime, jobs and recreation.

“When we entered office in Spring 2010, our work was cut out for us. Government had become a barrier to progress rather than a catalyst to change. Hundreds of rebuilding projects were unfunded, stalled and in disarray. Our police department teetered on collapse and was set to run out of money in the middle of the year. Our city was hurtling towards financial disaster. But the people of this city have an unwavering spirit and so against all odds we kept moving forward, one step at a time.

"Now, we have turned the corner and are blazing a new, difficult path forward. Everywhere you look progress is being made. But we still have more work to do. None of the problems we face will be solved overnight, but when we are united—one team, one fight, one voice, one city… one step—we can make New Orleans the city we’ve always wanted it to be.”
