    Post Letter to dignitary

    I'm writing a formal letter to a dignitary and need help addressing it. I know that the dignitary's title must be included in the address line but how about the directive portion of the letter? Example:

    Mayor Ray Nagin
    Address XXXX
    City, Stater Zip

    Dear Mayor Ray Nagin,

    or should it be

    Mayor Ray Nagin
    Address XXXX
    City, Stater Zip

    Dear Mr Ray Nagin,
