Aug 29 2017

The weather outlook got a little better for us.feedback

Aug 29 2017

Aug 29 2017

How much more uneasy could you feel right now in the city of New Orleans?feedback

Aug 29 2017

I'm recommending that everyone stay home tomorrow.feedback

The Sewerage and Water Board and contractors are now working 24/7 to repair all power and all pumps. Since early August, we've brought one turbine back online, we've repaired three major pumps and secured and mobilized 26 backup generators.feedback

Aug 13 2017 - Terrorism

These statues were a part of … terrorism as much as a burning cross on someone's lawn; they were erected purposefully to send a strong message to all who walked in their shadows about who was still in charge in this city.feedback

Aug 11 2017

The fact still remains we have an old system that needs to be upgraded.feedback

Aug 11 2017

We will have what we need to do the work. But in my mind, and I think in the minds of the people, it's not enough, because we need more back-up power.feedback

Aug 11 2017

We will look at the amount of money that is going to be required to fix the whole drainage system – the answer is we don't have enough – and then how we triage that. As we've said, we have $2 billion to rebuild our sewage drainage system, which we're working on, but it's a $9 billion problem. So this will continue for a very long period of time.feedback

Aug 11 2017

I want to assure the people of New Orleans that we're doing all we can to shore up our drainage system and we will not relent in this effort.feedback

Aug 11 2017

The obfuscation we saw today, it's insulting to the public.feedback

Aug 09 2017

The people of this city deserve to have all the facts. But we will never be able to pump our way out, or engineer our way out, from Mother Nature.feedback

Jun 28 2017

I thought it was really important to say that the Confederacy lost, The cause of the south was not a just cause.feedback

Jun 26 2017

We cannot stay quiet when there is injustice, even if it is being perpetrated by people with great power. Might does not make right.feedback

Jun 26 2017

In these most uncertain, chaotic, and sometimes frustrating times, the families that we represent cannot look to Washington for answers. In this political climate, we mayors must fight to occupy 'the radical center,' where idealism meets reality, and where we put people over politics. And so we need to speak with one voice, with courage, conviction and honesty. If we do, America will follow.feedback

Jun 26 2017

In my opinion, it will make us sicker and hurt the economy. It is a basic and fundamental reality that less coverage means more burden on our cities, on our hospitals, in our ERs and in our emergency response.feedback

Jun 26 2017

As the government closest to the ground, mayors are leading the way on issues both big and small.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

If the federal government doesn't act, it doesn't mean we don't have a national policy; the federal government doesn't occupy the only place on this. Mayors have to respond to circumstances. We have to keep moving no matter what.feedback

Jun 25 2017

We're moving to a different model in this country, and it's really going to be nonideological. It's going to be problem-solving driven.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Climate change

There's near unanimity in this conference that climate change is real and that humans contribute to it. There may be a little bit of a disagreement about how actually to deal with it. If the federal government refuses to act or is just paralyzed, the cities themselves, through their mayors, are going to create a new national policy by the accumulation of our individual efforts.feedback

Jun 22 2017

Just because we're not in the cone for this storm doesn't mean we're not going to continue to feel the impact from TS #Cindy.feedback

Jun 20 2017

This is going to be a very serious event.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Slavery

These statues are not just stone and metal. They are not just innocent remembrances of a benign history. These monuments purposefully celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy; ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement, and the terror that it actually stood for.feedback

May 28 2017

And so hopefully, the people of New Orleans will use this as an opportunity to reach into our past, tell our whole history, and then prepare for the future in a way that makes sense to us.feedback

May 23 2017 - Slavery

These monuments celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy; ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement, ignoring the terror that it actually stood for.feedback

May 22 2017

It won't erase history. But we can begin a new chapter of New Orleans's history by placing these monuments, and the legacy of oppression they represent, in museums and other spaces where they can be viewed in an appropriate educational setting as examples of our capacity to change.feedback

May 20 2017 - Slavery

May 19 2017

To literally put the Confederacy on a pedestal in our most prominent places of honor is an inaccurate recitation of our full past, it is an affront to our present, and it is a bad prescription for our future. History cannot be changed. It cannot be moved like a statue. What is done is done. The Civil War is over, and the Confederacy lost and we are better for it.feedback

May 19 2017

It's not good to continue to revere a false version of history and put the Confederacy on a pedestal. We as a nation are far enough from this that we ought to acknowledge that the Confederacy was on the wrong side of history. We have to acknowledge that the Confederacy was on the wrong side of history and that the people in the city of New Orleans have the right to honor in places that they own statues or mementos or commemorative matters that reflect our whole history and not just a narrow version of it.feedback

May 17 2017

Today we take another step in defining our City not by our past but by our bright future. While we must honor our history, we will not allow the Confederacy to be put on a pedestal in the heart of New Orleans.feedback

Three weeks ago we began the process of removing statues erected to honor the 'Lost Cause of the Confederacy'. This morning we continue our march to reconciliation by removing the Jefferson Davis Confederate statue from its pedestal of reverence.feedback

May 11 2017 - Slavery

These monuments have stood not as historic or educational markers of our legacy of slavery and segregation, but in celebration of it. I believe we must remember all of our history, but we need not revere it. To literally put the Confederacy on a pedestal in some of our most prominent public places is not only an inaccurate reflection of our past, it is an affront to our present, and a bad prescription for our future. We should not be afraid to confront and reconcile our past.feedback

May 11 2017

The removal of these statues sends a clear and unequivocal message to the people of New Orleans and the nation: New Orleans celebrates our diversity, inclusion and tolerance.feedback

May 07 2017

The time surely comes when must and will be heard. Members of the council, that day is today. The Confederacy, you see, was on the wrong side of history and humanity.feedback

May 07 2017

These statues are an aberration in terms of what New Orleans has been and what New Orleans wants to be.feedback

Apr 30 2017

As we began to rebuild our city and think again about who we were and what we were, these monuments popped just right up. And (we) said why do we have monuments that are revering the Confederacy right in the heart of the most prominent places in the city – in places of reverence. The thing that makes New Orleans really wonderful and beautiful that everybody experiences when you get here and that is our diversity. That's the gift that New Orleans has given to the rest of the country and these statues are an aberration.feedback

Apr 26 2017

Give us clarity about what you think a sanctuary city is, which we don't have now. The question then gets to be constitutionally how long we can hold that individual without a warrant.feedback

Apr 25 2017

We can remember these divisive chapters in our history in a museum or other facility where they can be put in context – and that's where these statues belong.feedback

Apr 24 2017

But let me be clear, we will not be deterred.feedback

Apr 24 2017

We will no longer allow the Confederacy to literally be put on a pedestal in the heart of our city.feedback

Apr 24 2017

Relocating these Confederate monuments is not about taking something away from someone else. This is not about politics, it's not about blame, it's not about retaliation. This is not a naive quest to solve all of our problems at once.feedback

Apr 24 2017

There's a better way to use the property these monuments are on and a way that better reflects who we are.feedback

Apr 24 2017

The statue was put up to honor the killing of police officers by white supremacists. Of the four that we will move, this statue is perhaps the most blatant affront to the values that make America and New Orleans strong today. All of what we will do in the next days will be designed to make sure that we protect everybody, that the workers are safe, the folks around the monuments are safe and that nobody gets hurt.feedback

There's a better way to use the property these monuments are on and a way that better reflects who we are. All of what we will do in the next days will be designed to make sure that we protect everybody, that the workers are safe, the folks around the monuments are safe and that nobody gets hurt. The monuments are an aberration. They're actually a denial of our history and they were done in a time when people who still controlled the Confederacy were in charge of this city and it only represents a four-year period in our 1000-year march to where we are today.feedback

Feb 25 2017

Apr 20 2016

It is unfortunate that New Orleans has had to relive this dark chapter in our city's history, and I hope that the decision today will allow us to finally turn the page and begin to heal. Police misconduct and abuse will not be tolerated.feedback

Jan 11 2016

What we're witnessing right now is really an engineering miracle. So many of us for so long wanted to make sure our homes and our lives were protected by creating a levee system.feedback
