CITY COUNCIL DOES AS ORDERED, ARRANGED, RIGGED, ETC., ETC. – Real Shreveport

It was a lot like waiting for water to boil. You know what’s going to happen, and that it will take longer than you want to spend waiting on it …

… The Shreveport City Council voted late this afternoon to send Mayor Adrian Perkins’ $186,000,000 bond issue to an election on November 16th.

The vote was 4-3, with Councilmen James Flurry, Willie Bradford, James Green and Jerry Bowman, Jr., in favor. Council members LeVette Fuller, John Nickelson and Grayson Boucher voted “no,” arguing in favor of a postponement until next spring.

Owing to his, uh, strong friendship with Councilman Willie Bradford, Councilman James Flurry did as that friendship dictated … to no one’s surprise. Perhaps the men will decide to tell everyone the details of their deal.

The “cut” to $186,000,000 from the original $220,000,000 was expected from the jump, and still leaves this bond issue the largest in Shreveport…
