Arceneaux casts early vote at new voting location; Tarver shares intentions for Shreveport
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The runoff election is almost a week away, and one of Shreveport’s mayoral candidates is voting early.
Tom Arceneaux and his wife casted their vote at the Hamilton Branch Shreve Memorial Library on Friday, Dec. 2.
Before he filled out his ballot, Arceneaux said he’s excited about the new early voting location for the people of Shreveport.
“It’s nice to have this additional place to vote. It’s the first time I’ve voted here. I usually vote downtown when I vote early. I’m looking forward to the whole process out here. It’s a very convenient place for the people in south Shreveport. We hope they take advantage of this opportunity for the last two days of early voting,” he said.
Earlier this week, Arceneaux received positive reinforcement and support from Incumbent Mayor Adrian Perkins, as well as former Shreveport mayors Cedric Glover and Ollie Tyler.
Senator Greg Tarver also spoke with KSLA News 12 on his intentions for the City of Shreveport.
“I said it to everybody and I’ll say it again. We’ve got to stop these petty differences. If we don’t stop these petty differences, Shreveport won’t be able to move ahead. If we don’t do something about crime, we’re going to be in serious trouble. I’m going to be very aggressive about crime.”
Saturday, Dec. 3 is the last day to vote early. The last chance to cast a ballot will be Dec. 10.
