I didn't vote for Glover, but Congratulations! Even when "my" candidate looses, I still appreciate the democratic system. I hope he is able to get some things done that his predicessors could not. I am especially interested in ideas on making Shreveport more "business friendly" when compared to other areas.

The people of Shreveport are not very smart. Glover was not impressive as a legislator, therefore who thinks he will be able to handle his new job? Will the city suffer financially? Bossier may grow at a much faster rate now.

I must admit to not following any of our local officials very closely.. But as far as the city suffering financially... didn't Hightower put Shreveport into some HEAVY DEBT ?? WHOEVER won this election.. the new mayor was going to have to do something about all that debt. But as rhertz has said.. Congrats to Glover and I wish him all the best.. and I hope he can do some good for Shreveport.

Didn't vote? Well thanks for your honesty. Many of my closest "peeps" aren't even registered to vote.... None of them are proud of that fact. Does anyone know what the voter turnout was? Was it above the voter turnout in Iraq? (above 50%)

People who don't vote, don't have the right to complain about our government. Jones is a great guy.

Wasn't the Iraqi voter turnout above 50% as I recall?? If so, then maybe the "problem in Iraq" isn't so much democrat or republican, but rather something else?

The Mayor

Mayor Glover is going to be just like old Keith and spend, spend , spend. I just watched a clip of the city council and with all the fighting that goes on they are like children. Why do the higher educated people stay away from public office ? I think the value of my house in Bossier will be going up in the
next four years and that means tax increase. People have been moving to Bossier for the last ten years to get away from the crime and poor government in Shreveport. Now they have four more years of brother in-law politics in Shreveport and some how I just don't feel like a brother in Shreveport. I did vote and have only missed voting one time in 28 years and I
was the first at my precinct to vote. There will be some flight to Bossier in the
next four years. Try to walk thru the Board Walk with your pants down. Will not happen there.

What person in their 'right mind' would run for office ? and put themselves and their families through such an ordeal. Should someone like that actually try and run for office.. the 'politicians' send them through the ringer.

it always amazes me how much money these people spend running for office. no 'normal' person could every afford to run for office it seems, even if they wanted to.

It does take a great guy to do great things. It takes someone with the back bone to do great things. I am a minority in Shreveport and I want my fair share of the entitlements.

Where is my fair share. I am educated, serving the community in an honorable career. I guess my fair share is being in a high tax bracket. As minority status, according to shreveport census I am a minority as well
