Did Mayor Perkins Ever Really Have a Political ‘Honeymoon’? [VIDEO]
Political analyst Dr. Jeff Sadow talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about his criticism of Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins, displeasure he voiced in an article on his site, jeffsadow.blogspot.com:
Sadow goes after the new Mayor over his "Clean City Fee" proposal:
"...He hit a minor speed bump when he proposed a garbage fee to a public wary but open to the idea. However, he botched any swift enactment because he not only refused to follow nearby Bossier City’s lead in contracting the service and that way likely saving money, instead couching his advocacy as a way of expanding bureaucracy, but he also pegged the proposed levy at an excessively high $18 a month."
He also criticizes Perkins over his recent handling of a switch in the city's insurance carriers:
"Apparently right before he took the oath of office, an operative of his cajoled the city into shifting around half a million dollars of insurance business from longtime carriers to a firm represented by an agent who not only donated to Perkins’ campaign, but who apparently is related to Perkins campaign manager."
