Shreveport's Chief Administrative Office Sherricka Fields Jones talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the $220 million bond package proposed by Mayor Adrian Perkins.

The Mayor hopes that his plan will be approved by the city council and the measure will go to the voters in November.
