Jackson's Mayoral Announcement A No Go At Proud Mary's?

Caddo Commissioner had planned to have his mayoral announcement next Thursday at Proud Mary’s restaurant and bar.

The only problem is that leases in the Red River District, which is owned by the City of Shreveport, prohibit political events.

Just a minor detail, sorta like the switched auto plates that were a challenge for Jackson earlier this year.

Jackson, who worked for Glover as an administrative aide, holds himself out as a municipal law expert.

Maybe he should have spent more time looking at the lease rather than trying to solve Shreveport’s crime problems by meeting with a sales rep for a law enforcement vendor.
