Senator Karen Carter Peterson, Chair of LDP said, “I’m extremely proud of my mayor and friend, Mitch, who has been a fearless leader for our city. I look forward to his future work in this capacity. The U.S. Conference of Mayors is fortunate to have a hardworking, pioneering president.”

Notable quotes from Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s speech to the U.S. Conference of Mayors today:

  • “In this political climate, we as mayors must fight to occupy the radical center, where idealism meets reality and where we put people over politics.”

  • “This country is clearly hungry for results, and that is what a mayor delivers everyday. We govern in real time. We govern in reality. We never step back when duty calls. We don’t just talk about it. We don’t just debate it. We don’t have time for that.”
