Referring to his remarks about Philadelphia’s problem with trash and litter, Nagin said in a statement issued yesterday that he was speaking to a New Orleans community group Saturday and, “in an effort to reassure the citizens of New Orleans of the progress being made in our recovery, I pointed to an area in which many American cities struggle but which we are achieving some success.”
“I intended no disrespect to the city of Philadelphia,” Nagin’s statement said. “We are truly thankful for the generosity of our hosts and look forward to a long, positive working relationship between our cities.”
