Nagin: The Forgotten Interview


I didn't notice this interview when the mayor gave it last month, and I might be reading too much into it now, but while talking about consolidating assessors' offices and courts, the mayor said:

“We’ve already laid off close to 3,000 city workers. We’ve made some tough calls and we need to make some other tough calls.”

“We have to (downsize). I can’t afford it. We can’t afford it.”

He also added:

He said federal aid would keep the parish healthy through this year, but that reducing costs significantly will be essential in 2007.

“We’ll limp through 2006,” he said. “But in 2007 we won’t have all these community disaster loans.”

I can think of a few obvious questions for the next mayoral forum.

Thanks to the former coworker who mailed in the link.
