New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu has taken the oath of office for his second term. The mayor must find a way to pay for mandated reforms, as well as for recovery projects launched after Hurricane Katrina.
Mayor Landrieu took the oath of office with other elected city officials at a ceremony in the restored Saenger Theater — a location selected for its own backstory.
“Look no further than this spectacular theater; $53 million renovations," Landrieu said. "Now the nicest theater in America.”
