Mayor Mitch Landrieu released the following statement Tuesday night regarding President Obama’s State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress:
“Last week, when I met with President Obama, he committed to create jobs by making smart investments in infrastructure, education, and innovation. Tonight, President Obama demonstrated that he clearly understands the needs of the American people and specifically those of us in cities across our country. President Obama understands like I do that a leaner, more efficient government doesn’t mean cutting at any cost. We cannot cut our way to excellence. We must cut smart, reorganize, and invest for the future.
“This is not only about creating better communities today but also for future generations. Tonight, President Obama laid out a plan to win by out-innovating, out-educating and out-building the rest of the world. No where is the battle for the future of America more evident than here in New Orleans—the most immediate laboratory for change and innovation in our country. With President Obama as a key partner, we are transforming our infrastructure, schools, housing and health care system, and in the process, we are creating a more robust economy.
“I look forward to working with the President as we rebuild New Orleans and create a blue print for urban renewal across America.”
