Political Analyst Hughes Makes Prediction in Bond Proposal Election [VIDEO]
Political analyst Scott Hughes talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about his thoughts on Saturday's Shreveport vote on the $186 million bond issue.
Hughes tells KEEL listeners that a great deal of opposition to the three ballot propositions are based on work still undone from previous mayoral administrations, including both Knight Street repair and the Cross Bayou park project.
And pertaining to the proposals, Hughes sticks to his previous predictions. "Last Tuesday I thought two of the three passed," he says. "I think fire and police and I think water and sewer pass. I think one of the things people miss...there is still a large percentage of Shreveport that doesn't listen to the Republican Party. There's a lot of Shreveport that doesn't care about the Trump rally. And there's probably a lot of Shreveport that doesn't care about what the mayor did and said, 'Good for him.' But we're looking at a vote that will be very, very close."
