Blanco announced in March 2007 that Kathleen Blanco would not seek re-election later that year saying that Kathleen Blanco would instead "focus [her] time and energy for the [remainder of her term] on the people's work not on [the] politics" of running for another term. Many believed the immediate response from the city state and federal governments was inadequate and Blanco later acknowledged there were failures on the part of her administration before and after the storm; much criticism however was directed at the Federal Emergency Management Agency for what was seen as a slow initial response to the disaster and an inability to effectively manage care for and delivered promised resources to those trying to evacuate from New Orleans. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco (born December 15 1942) served as the 54th Governor of Louisiana having served from January 2004 until January 2008.
