Tarver: “Perkins Misrepresented Himself to Me”
Things are certainly heating up in the Shreveport Mayor's race. Adrian Perkins will be getting the endorsement of some city and parish leaders on Wednesday. But he has apparently lost one supporter.
State Senator Greg Tarver is no longer supporting Perkins. In fact, when I contacted the Senator this morning he had this to say:
Adrian Perkins in not the person I thought he was. He is not a man of his word and he misrepresented himself to me.
Tarver told me Shreveport's next Mayor must be honest and organized.
I reached out to get Perkins' response and he said:
I respect the Senator's decision not to support me. His opinion is his opinion. I'm still going to focus on the future of our city.
We discussed this bombshell on the air this morning. If you missed it, here it is.
