Looking ahead at the Bossier City elections, there appear to be some races on the horizon.
The last elections saw Scott Irwin, Jeff Darby, Don Williams and David Jones run unopposed. Marsha McAlister ran in an attempt to capture one of two at-large seats, held by Tim Larkin and David Montgomery, Larkin and Montgomery were re-elected.
In District 5, Dr. Rogers had retired, and the seat was contested by Chubby Knight and Larry Hanisee. Knight won, but resigned before the term expired. Larry Hanisee won the remainder of the term in a race against Tommy Harvey in a squeaker, by a two vote margin. I expect a rematch next spring.
Lo Walker was unopposed as Mayor, but this time around Councilman Don Williams is considering mounting a challenge to the two-time incumbent.
If he does, that will leave the District 3 seat open.
I have also heard rumors of a couple of other possible candidates.
As to the Mayor’s race, just for kicks I have put up a poll on the right sidebar.
We’ll get into it more as the year progresses.
