Jacob “Jake” Toloso on Tuesday June 8, 2010 at 4:00pm will announce his candidacy for Shreveport City Council District “C” at Shreveport’s Duck Pond Park near the Northernmost parking lot. Reception following at Deli Tini 520, East Kings Highway Suite 106.
Toloso, an Independent, began campaigning door to door earlier this spring to learn further his neighbors concerns for their district and city. In that time he has also met with many small business owners throughout District “C” and has heard the needs of those who help fuel our local economy. From property standards and Shreveport’s aging water system to start up hurdles and taxes, many issues have been discussed.
Jake, a life long resident of Shreveport and Bossier City, lives in the Broadmoor Terrace Neighborhood. He is a member of the Captain Shreve Neighborhood Association.
As the City Councilman from District “C”, it shall be Toloso’s business to: Quell Urban Blight, Promote Small Business Development and Growth, Practice Budget Sustainability, Encourage Modern Zoning, Develop Dynamic City Ordinances, Expand Recycling & Pursue Other Green Initiatives, Establish a Dog Park and Continue Crime Reduction and Officer Support.
Running as an Independent, Jake Toloso plans to build a new type of local politics that leaves partisan bickering no place at the table. It is Jake’s view that for far to long voters have had to choose between the two major parties being left with no other options. As an Independent, Jake will be able to work from the common ground where most Shreveporters and Americans can be found.
