Mayor Landrieu Marks Katrina Anniversary at City Memorial
By Eileen Fleming
New Orleans, LA – Mayor Landrieu says New Orleans has reason to celebrate steps being taken to not only recover from Katrina but make the city better than it was before the storm. He says the school system, police service and health care programs continue to improve. But at a city memorial where the remains of nearly 100 unidentified and unclaimed people are entombed, he says there's more work ahead.
"We're going to stay together however long it takes to rebuild this city. And today the reason I come here is because this place is a symbol that we're going to remember the least among us."
Katrina memorials are being held around the city.
