NEW ORLEANS, LA—Mayor Mitch Landrieu released the following statement today following news that Henry Braden IV passed away.
"Today we lost a civic giant who worked tirelessly on behalf of our community. Hank Braden served our city, our state and our country with distinction for decades. From his work with the Urban League and Total Community Action, to his service in the legislature, he truly personified what it means to be a public servant. He will be dearly missed, but his legacy will certainly live on."
