1st Shreveport Mayoral Forum targets millennials


It’s day four in a four month campaign in the race for Shreveport mayor.

Tuesday’s mayoral forum targeted younger voters.  It was the first forum of its kind hosted by the New Leaders Council Louisiana Chapter and Heliopolis Magazine. 

Organizers said candidates must have at least 500 followers on social media to be invited.

Steven Jackson, Adrian Perkins, Lee Savage, Ollie Tyler and John Paul Young were invited to participate.  Candidate Jim Taliaferro was invited to Tuesday’s forum but was unable to attend.

The candidates were given time to address the city’s crime issues and economic struggles.
