Mayor Mitch Landrieu will deliver his final "State of the City" speech Thursday, July 6, with about 10 months left in office.
Landrieu has been brought into the national spotlight this year for both taking down Confederate monuments around the city and his accompanying speech reflecting on race and diversity in New Orleans. The transcript, written by Landrieu himself, garnered praise from national press and was shared thousands of times.
In his "State of the City" address, the mayor will likely tout his administration's accomplishments over the past year and set goals for the year ahead as the city approaches its 300th anniversary celebration.
Thursday's "State of the City" speech will be delivered at the Civic Theatre (510 O'Keefe Avenue) downtown starting at 5:30 p.m.
