Resignations rock government; Will Smith surprises students

Shreveport, you rained on me for the first time Wednesday night. My phone said a Louisiana tornado might be coming my way. Maybe this week the weather will be more chill. That doesn’t seem to be the case for the storm surrounding local politics.

The Shreveport City Council and the Caddo Parish Commission both must replace a member in the next month.

Caddo lost Lynn Cawthorne to his federal charges Monday. Cawthorne indicated he will resign from the Commission, according to a press release from the county’s communications manager. No official word has come from the confirming state department and Cawthorne issued no public statements. Cawthorne pled guilty to wire fraud and false tax returns Nov. 5.

Shreveport lost their District E councilman James Flurry Wednesday. He moved away from his district – vacating his office – but feels rushed by fellow Republicans to leave the council. In a fiery radio interview with Robert and Erin on KEEL radio, Flurry announced he’d leave the council and the Republican Party.

We want to say thanks to the author of this post for this awesome material
