Landrieu Says Recovery In Full Gallop Despite Lower Census
Written by 

New Orleans Mayor, Mitch Landrieu, released a statement today that did not mention the lower than expected census numbers but did strike a note that the city would continue rebounding from recent events such as Katrina.  Landrieu described New Orleans's recovery is in "full gallop". 

The 2010 Census count determined that the New Orleans population is 343,829 people. An interim Census count last year found the city's population standing at about 355,000.

By comparison, in the 2000 Census, New Orleans’s population was 484,674 people.

As a result of the census results, the area will be negatively affect regarding redistricting and federal dollars.

Landrieu said in his written statement:

“Our progress has always been much bigger than a population number. Today, our recovery is in a full gallop. Billions of dollars of investments are hitting the ground.  We are redesigning the criminal justice system from the ground up.  Our schools are being transformed into centers of excellence where every kid has an opportunity to get a quality education.  And our health care delivery system has been hailed as a national model.

“Over five years after Hurricane Katrina, our story is one of redemption and resurrection. We are not rebuilding the city we were, but creating the city we want to become, brick by brick and block by block.

“Accurate Census estimates in future years will ensure that city government and local non- profit organizations will have the federal funds necessary to provide our growing population with important services.”

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
