New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell says the people of the city she represents are everything and the part of her job that brings her most joy. “What brings me the most joy about being the Mayor of the city of New Orleans, a world-class city, no other city in the world in my opinion and truly in the United States of America, is the culture that is reflected in the people in the city,” she extolled to ESSENCE. “My greatest joy is representing the people of the city, knowing that I’m the people’s mayor in the city, from community organizer to New Orleans city councilwoman and now mayor.” Cantrell first fell in love with the Big Easy when she arrived in 1990 as a student at Xavier University of Louisiana.
