Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu and City officials provided an update on the status of the Sewerage and Water Board’s drainage system in New Orleans. The turbine damaged on Wednesday night, Turbine #1, is running after being successfully repaired and gradually brought back online. Twenty-two of 26 generators ordered for additional capacity and redundancy have arrived and are being connected. They are expected to be in service by Monday. Four final generators are in route from Miami and will be delivered Monday. This redundancy will remain throughout Hurricane Season. The City will update residents on generator deliveries as information becomes available.

The irony is that the city of New Orleans is in the process of destroying history while getting ready to celebrate its’ tri-centennial next year. A city known for priceless architecture and monuments is becoming less interesting, all because of the politically correct aspirations of a liberal Democrat Mayor, Mitch Landrieu.
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu is strutting around the city touting his “new clothes,” the culmination of his highly publicized Confederate monument removal process. While this master of distraction focuses on destroying history, his city is becoming more and more violent every day. Will someone in the media or on the City Council call out his utter nakedness?
Last week, Louisiana Republican United States Senator John Kennedy, stepped into the New Orleans-Mayor Mitch Landrieu-confederate monument removal-controversy, during a radio talk show conversation with Jeff Crouere of WGSO Radio.
