Today City Councilman Sam Jenkins announced his candidacy for mayor of Shreveport.

Jenkins was supposed to announce his candidacy in the spring but put the move on hold.

He has his family's support but he says running isn't about him, it's about the community.

Jenkins says his experience as a commissioner and a city councilman will help him run the city.
