The "Recruit Sam Jenkins" group is meeting today to encourage the councilman to get back in the race for Mayor.
Members believe that Jenkins is the right candidate to foster unity in the Shreveport community and to move the city forward in jobs, improved neighborhoods and revitalized infrastructure.
The group has also asked Jenkins to attend the gathering which will take place at 11 a.m. at the Hilton hotel in downtown Shreveport.
