Mitch Landrieu officially will be mayor of New Orleans next week. So this week, we’re finally beginning to get an idea of what his actual transition will be like – the one in which he actually takes over the job of leading the city.
With barely more than a week left before taking office, Mayor-elect Mitch Landrieu sent letters Thursday notifying top officials in the administration of Mayor Ray Nagin that their services would no longer be needed come May 3. Transition team spokesman Todd Ragusa would not say who received the pink slips, saying only that the notified employees “serve at the pleasure of the mayor.”
“As with any mayoral transition, Mayor-elect Landrieu will bring a new leadership team to City Hall on May 3,”he said.
