MAYOR CANTRELL ISSUES STATEMENT ON THE END OF THE SAINTS' SEASON
NEW ORLEANS — Mayor LaToya Cantrell today issued the following statement on the end of the Saints’ historic 2018 season:
“I speak for all of New Orleans and for all of Saints Nation when I say how incredibly proud we are of our team -- of what they accomplished and of how graciously and professionally they represented our people at every step of the way,” said Mayor Cantrell. “Sunday’s result is a bitter pill for us all, and I stand with Gayle Benson and fully support her fight to aggressively pursue changes to NFL policies.
“My administration has sent a letter on behalf of the City to Commissioner Roger Goodell expressing our deep dismay, encouraging him to break his silence and step up for what’s right.
“We’re a family in New Orleans. We celebrate together, and we grieve together -- both in our own unique way. As the people of our City step out to show their love for the Saints, I will be right there with them, ‘in that number’: to show love for our team, and to show them the respect they have earned.”
