What was planned to be a great boom to many construction companies has now turned into a financial nightmare for over 40 subcontractors who claim they are owed over $68 million by Walbridge Aldinger Company — the general contractor for the Benteler Steel/Tub Manufacturing Corporation and its new plant at the Shreveport-Bossier Port.
Unfortunately, the writers of the article did, in fact, slander the Louisiana Supreme Court — identify themselves, the Stewart Campaign. James Stewart and his campaign manager, Marshall Jones, as well as attorney minions who contributed to this pathetic the Disciplinary Counsel of the Louisiana State Bar.
The general election on Saturday, Nov. 21, will determine the outcome of many statewide races (the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general) and four Caddo races — District Attorney, Caddo Commissioner District 3 and 8 and State Senate District 38.
To those who have closely followed the campaign of James Stewart for Caddo DA, nothing is a surprise that comes out of his mouth — or what does not come out. Stewart’s entire race has been a series of “I do not know” or “I will not comment.
Even the most casual TV viewer has probably noticed a heavy, heavy divulge of James Stewart for DA commercials that started in the last week. And there’s good reason: $256,000 has been dumped by an out-ofstate liberal into the Stewart campaign.
Caddo Commissioner Jerald Bowman will be able to continue his campaign for re-election to the Commission — much to the dismay of career politician Roy Burrell, who had been in elected office and on the public payroll since 1994.
It’s a good thing that a recent internal audit of the Caddo School Board’s Capital Construction and Projects Department (CCPD) surfaced this August versus last year this time, when the school board was pushing the renewal of a school tax bond.
If there was ever an open season on incumbent elected officials, the upcoming Caddo Commission elections are better than a baited field on the first day of dove season. In times past, incumbents on the Commission were rarely challenged, much less defeated.
