NEW ORLEANS - Today, Council President Helena Moreno praised the hiring of former mayor Mitch Landrieu as Senior Advisor and Infrastructure Coordinator for President Biden's bipartisan infrastructure bill. The nearly $1 trillion package is the largest federal investment in US infrastructure in history.
“Mayor Landrieu is exactly the leader this country needs to effectively and aggressively implement the landmark bipartisan infrastructure package,” said Council President Moreno. “New Orleans needs a significant investment in grid hardening and resiliency, as well as drainage, water management, and more. Mayor Landrieu knows intimately the needs of our city, and I’m confident he’ll be a powerful ally for New Orleans in D.C.”
