Shreveport City Councilman Jerry Bowman talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert and Erin about the council's unanimous rejection of Mayor Ollie Tyler's sports arena proposal, and why he was absent from the vote on one of the most important decisions in city history.

Bowman also tells KEEL listeners what he thinks the flaws were in the mayor's presentation to, not only the council, but the city. He also reveals the discussions with other members prior to the vote, and whether or not he was surprised by its outcome.
