The Hon. Mitch Landrieu, Mayor of New Orleans
Voted America's top turnaround mayor in 2016 for leading efforts on public health, infrastructure, and gun violence, Mitch Landrieu, a two-term mayor of New Orleans, has been named as the Wayne Hyatt Lecture Series keynote speaker for the upcoming 2019 Community Association Law Seminar in New Orleans, Jan. 23–26.
As New Orleans' mayor, Landrieu inherited a city crippled by Hurricane Katrina. He was able to secure billions in federal funding for schools, hospitals, parks, and critical infrastructure to help New Orleans become one of the nation's great comeback stories. During his second term as mayor, Landrieu was awarded the prestigious John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for advocating for and overseeing the removal of four Confederate monuments in New Orleans.
Louisiana's 51st lieutenant governor from 2004 to 2010 prior to becoming New Orleans' mayor, Landrieu also spent many years as a representative in the state's legislature. He will share highlights from his many years' experience as a legislator and lawyer with Law Seminar attendees.
