Mayor Mitch Landrieu will deliver his 2017 State of the City address July 6. The speech - an annual update on Landrieu's policy efforts, infrastructure plans and other citywide updates - will be his final State of the City address, with a fall election determining the two-term mayor's successor for 2018.
The speech begins 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 6 at the Civic Theatre (510 O'Keefe Ave.). Doors open at 4:30 p.m. RSVP is required; the event also will be live streamed via Facebook and on Twitter (@MayorLandrieu and the hashtag #NOLASOTC).
Landrieu postponed the speech twice, first after U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise was shot at a baseball park outside Washington D.C., then again as Tropical Storm Cindy threatened the Gulf Coast. [location-1]
