Shreveport mayoral candidate Steven Jackson talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about his reasons for running, vision for the city and goals for a Jackson administration.

Jackson tells KEEL listeners that his plan "to move Shreveport forward" includes what he calls his "opportunity agenda" and that "Shreveport has to be positioned as a city of opportunity" which involves a revitalization of the economy, jobs and economic growth.

Addressing the city's financial situation, Jackson says that "budgeting is about priorities. If you look at where your priorities are, you make the resources and allocations available." The candidate also emphasizes that his plan "Doesn't call for any new taxes or fees."

Jackson also outlines his plans for the first days of his administration, including plans to replace both the city's chief of police and director of the water and sewerage department.
