I am surprised that no one has suggested a recall of Mayor Walker. Bossier City is in decline. Look around. Trashy roads, pot holes, reduced city services, inadequate police protection, water department outsourced, many other city services slated to be outsourced.

Why is an 87-year-old guy with multiple retirements still inflicting his mismanagement on us all? We can’t wait for the election. We need to recall Lo now! What say you, South Bossier? Rise up and take back our city from incompetent leadership before it is too late! Move on, Lo, move on!
