NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell has about two and a half years left in her second and final term.
During her time in office, she has weathered a powerful hurricane named Ida, the COVID-19 pandemic, and most recently, a failed recall effort that garnered more than 27,000 signatures.
Friday, she looked back on the challenges and her future.
She said the recall campaign left her humbled and vindicated.
“I come through focused on the work and continuing to deliver results on behalf of the city,” Cantrell said.
The needs are many in the city.
Most categories of violent crime here are still higher than the national average.
Car theft is out of control with criminals stealing about one vehicle an hour since the beginning of the year.
