"Meet the Mayor of New Orleans" Locals Tip by gussymons

  Mayor of New Orleans with author at Mardi Gras '02
by gussymons

Mark Moriel Jr. is the mayor of New Orleans and he met me the day after Fat Tuesday at a Press conference. I thanked him for having organised Mardi Gras 2002 for me, and said what a great town it was.

The Press conference wasn't held for me, but to point out mundane things such as tonnes of litter collected, muggings and other violent crimes during Mardi Gras - remarkably few.

Anyhow, he is the first mayor I ever met and not the last. Unfortunately, I do not have the photo of me and the Croydon mayor - you have to take my word that I met him later that year. Two mayors in one year! Now I know what the Queen must feel.
