Mitchin’ Ain’t Easy: The Friends and Advisors of Mitch Landrieu, Mayor of New Orleans 2010-2018

 


Kayla Martinez

Chair

Kayla is a second-year majoring in Creative Writing with a minor in Cinema and Media Studies and Theater and Performance Studies. Raised right outside of New Orleans (not in the heart of the city— Teddy won’t let her make New Orleans-based claims that aren’t true), she couldn’t be happier to discuss the intricacies of something that quite literally hits close to home. She has previously served as an Assistant Chair for The Midnight Nightingale: Bahadur Shah and the Last Days of the Mughal Empire, 1857. In her free time, Kayla enjoys writing slam poetry (it isn’t as obnoxious as it sounds), claiming that she’s from New Orleans, and making and eating Kraft microwave macaroni. To reach her, send an email to kaylamartinez@uchicago.edu.
 

Theron Boerner

Crisis Director

Theron is a third year majoring in computer science and mathematics. Theron was proudly made and manufactured in Austin, TX, where there is rarely flooding. Last year, Theron dutifully served as Experienced Assistant Chair on The Midnight Nightingale: Bahadur Shah and the Last Days of the Mughal Empire, 1857. In the free time that Theron does not have, he makes short and long films, practices the keyboard (qwerty), enjoys all that nature has to offer, focusing in particular on flora, fauna, and foraging. If at first you don't succeed, email Theron at theron@uchicago.edu.

Theodore Todaro

Crisis Director

Teddy is a third year majoring in Statistics and minoring in Cinema and Media Studies. Born in New Orleans and raised in Baton Rouge, Teddy is a Louisiana boy through and through, even if he currently resides in Chicago. As a Louisiana boy, he is insanely excited to be running a committee about New Orleans. In ChoMUN, Teddy has previously served as an Assistant Chair for A Little Bit Holy, Not at All Roman, and Not Yet an Empire: The Court of Maria Theresa, 1740 at ChoMUN XXI and as a Crisis Director for The Midnight Nightingale: Bahadur Shah and the Last Days of the Mughal Empire, 1857. Teddy’s primary hobbies revolve around watching sports, talking about sports, or playing sports video games (the Saints were robbed). If you have any questions about the committee, he can be found at theodoret@uchicago.edu.
