Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cedric Bradford Glover is the Democratic mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana -- the first African American to hold the position. Outgoing Mayor Keith Hightower was term-limited in 2006, after having won election in both 1998 and 2002. Glover defeated the Republican mayoral candidate, former city attorney Jerry Jones, in the general election held on November 7, 2006, by a 54-46 percent margin. The third-place contender, former broadcast journalist Liz Swaine, had been eliminated in the nonpartisan blanket primary held on September 30. Glover was formerly a member in both the Louisiana House of Representatives and the Shreveport City Council. In the primary held on October 2, 2010, Glover sought a second term against seven opponents. He led with 16,376 votes, and city council member Bryan Wooley, a Republican, trailed with 11,218 votes. In the November 2 general election, Glover handily defeated Wooley, 37,699 votes to 21,021show more
