bond meeting

Councilman Willie Bradford (seated right) listens as a resident speaks to Mayor Adrian Perkins and members of his administration at a recent community bond meeting.

SHREVEPORT La -- It's time for "a full court press," said City Councilman Willie Bradford on the upcoming $186 million city bond election.

Bradford said he was disappointed by the turnout at last week's community bond meeting, which was in his district 'A.' Those meetings are going on each week from one district to the next.

Bradford urged Mayor Adrian Perkins to work hard to sell the list of capital improvement projects to voters.

"The opportunity's here. People are watching us. And I'm just hoping we don't disappoint ourselves and our people and those that would want to come to Shreveport because we're too divided that we won't even help ourselves," Bradford said at Monday's council work session.

The next community meeting is Thursday, 6 p.m. at the Valencia Park Recreation Center, 1800 Viking Dr., in the Stoner Hill area.

The bond election is on the Nov. 16 ballot.
