Caddo administrator talks about election

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

 

The Caddo Parish voter turnout was low for this past Saturday's election. It's estimated only 6.1 percent of registered voters approached the polls, but they had a huge impact.


None of the propositions the Caddo Commission put on the ballot passed. One requested around $23 million in capital bond money and the other extended commissioner's term limits, possibly allowing them 20 years on the board. The bond money was to be used to help maintain parish roads, buildings and other properties. The parish has millions in reserve, which they may have to tap into.


"Starting in 2015 we don't have any money, dedicated funds to do capital projects," Dr. Woody Wilson, the parish administrator, said. "We'd have to take a look at existing resources and see what we'd have to do to make some shifts and that type of stuff to may sure we have money."


Commissioner Jerald Bowman was also elected to serve a for district 5.
