Politician of the Year 2008: Lifting Louisiana
Berry, John N., III
Library Journal, v133 n15 p26-27 Sep 2008
This article features Mitch Landrieu and his contributions to the upliftment of Louisiana through libraries. After the onslaught of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Landrieu said they realized how important libraries are. Now in his second term as lieutenant governor of Louisiana, Landrieu oversees the Office of the State Library along with the state's Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism. The New Orleans native, son of former New Orleans mayor Moon Landrieu and brother of Louisiana senator Mary Landrieu, is part of a dynasty of local Democrats, and he has put his political muscle behind libraries.
