DSDC hosts District B candidate forum; only one candidate attends
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Downtown Shreveport Development Corp. (DSDC) hosted a District B runoff candidate forum Wednesday morning.
On Nov. 30 from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., the DSDC hosted the candidate forum for District B due to the runoff election in the district.
The event was held at the Hilton Shreveport Market 104 Restaurant at 104 Market St. in downtown Shreveport.
Both candidates were invited to participate; only Gary Brooks attended. Mavice Thigpen declined the invitation.
“While it would be preferable to have both candidates in attendance to share their thoughts publicly about issues, DSDC believes it is important to proceed with whomever is willing to come share his or her thoughts on the issues faced by downtown and District B,” said a statement on the Downtown Shreveport website.
