City Council’s New Members Talk Growth, Budgets and Blight [VIDEO]
Newly elected Shreveport City Council members Grayson Boucher, John Nickelson and LeVette Fuller talk with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about their campaigns, the election and what they see as their role in charting a new direction for the city.
In Part 2 of their conversation, the three tell KEEL listeners that, as have many pundits and analysts, that the recent election is more about a generational shift in the city's politics than it is about party affiliation or race.
The new members also discuss the growing problem of blight, i.e., abandoned buildings and properties, and the ongoing debate over building new or renovating the old.
Fuller, Boucher and Nickelson also talk about the Shreveport city budget for 2019, recently passed by the council consisting of four outgoing members and possible ideas to expand the city's shrinking tax base.
