“New Orleans says a final goodbye to Former Councilman Bryan Wagner, who in 1980 became the first Republican since the Reconstruction era to be elected to the City Council,” said Mayor Cantrell. “I call him a friend. He was a leader for his party and a fighter for his constituents. His passion and his dedication to local politics and civic leadership were an asset for our City and her people.”

Mr. Wagner served District A from 1980 to 1986. In 1986, he was named as a Republican national committeeman from Louisiana. He led the Louisiana delegation to the 2008 Republican National Convention.
