The seat is currently held by her husband, Jerry Bowman Jr., who is serving his last term.

In a news release, she said she plans to spend the rest of the summer and fall visiting the residents of District G in an effort to learn of the community’s concerns and ideas.

“We have seen a lot of change in Shreveport during the past few years and more change is on the way,” she said. “In order to manage this change effectively, we need a good balance of experience and innovative ideas on the Shreveport City Council. I will bring the innovative ideas and enthusiasm to the City Council to move Shreveport forward.”
