BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - This Saturday, Dec. 11, Bossier City voters will decide who they want to be their next District 1 councilman.

Brian Hammons and Michael Lombardino are in the runoff for that seat. One of them will represent the south Bossier area. Scott Irwin currently holds the interim seat.

KSLA News 12 got the opportunity to speak with both candidates about the changes they want to see in their district.

Hammons: “Some of the main issues I see down here are aging infrastructure, which is our roads, our water and sewer in a lot of the neighborhoods and property standards.”

Lombardino: “I want to make sure our focus stays on the Jimmie Davis Bridge, not let that fall by the wayside. That’s a big issue in south Bossier. Our streets, our sidewalks, our drainage in south Bossier.”

KSLA News 12 asked what’s on the top of their checklist if they win the council seat.

Lombardino: ”I want to be present, I want to let them know that I’m there. I want to go over the details, I want to look and see the direction we have going. I would like to see businesses look at South Bossier a little bit. That’s the thing I would want to get on point; and I’ve said it from the beginning, with the Bossier Chamber of Commerce.”

Hammons: ”Probably getting with property standards, that is one of my biggest pet peeves is property standards. The overgrown yards, garbage in front of houses. When people don’t keep up their houses to the standards that it needs to be, it affects everyone.”

Polls close Saturday at 8 p.m. You can find the election results here.
