Governor Spiro T. Agnew's speech to 3,000 mayors and officials in New Orleans, on the problems of the poor and the urban crisis, December 9, 1968. Ed Rabel reports for CBS. Vice President-elect Spiro T. Agnew announces that under the Nixon administration, the problems of the poor will be solved by placing professionals in control of the urban crisis. In addition, he clarifies that the poor will no longer play a role in determining where federal funding will be spent, but instead, the money will go to officials rather than independent groups.
