"...But as bad as it was here, Jennifer Day has seen much worse.
Day, director of communications and public relations for the New Orleans Convention Center and Visitors Bureau, was the keynote speaker Tuesday at the Walton County Tourist Development Council’s 2010 annual meeting.
“I know you all have been going through a rough time, but I’m here to tell you that if New Orleans can weather the largest man-made disaster in history, the recession and stand alongside you in this BP oil spill … so can you,” Day told the crowd at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa. “Let me tell you, New Orleans is back. New Orleans is stronger than it’s been in years."
Day called Hurricane Katrina the worst man-made disaster in U.S. history, considering the failure of the city’s levees. More than 1,800 people died, and damage to buildings and infrastructure totaled billions of dollars.
