If you have ever gotten an e-mail from me, you have seen one of my favorite quotes is by Gandhi: Be the change you wish to see in the world. Well today I am taking a big step towards being the change I want to see, starting at home in Shreveport.
For a few years now I have been contemplating running for City Council if Bryan Wooley decided to run for Mayor of Shreveport. After much thought and prayer, I have decided to do just that.
Politics has always interested me, although involvement was never something I thought I would do- it just kept happening. God opened up so many doors for me, from touching my heart on the Abortion issue, to giving me the opportunity to represent Shreveport/Bossier at the 2008 Republican National Convention. Politics isn’t a “Me” thing, its 100% a “God” thing.
District D is my home, it’s where I have lived all my life, it’s where I went to school growing up, it’s where my husband and I decided to live after we got married. I have been from one side of the district to the other, and I love it.
I love Shreveport too, and it’s where I want to stay and raise my family. Unfortunately my friends and classmates at LSUS don’t always feel the same. It seems like everyday I hear someone saying how they can’t wait to “get out of here.’ I don’t want that to happen. I want people my age to stay in Shreveport, build businesses and families, and build Shreveport to where it can truly be “the next great city of the south.”
So this is why I have decided to run for City Council in District D. I don’t want this to become a campaign site, so I will leave it at this, but I felt that my readers would want to know my decision. Many of you have encouraged me to do this, and I thank you for your support and ask for your continued prayers as a begin this long and difficult journey.
I fully believe the quote I have at the top of this page- “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny…” well my rendezvous is here, and I hope you will all support me as I try to save “this, the last best hope of man on Earth.”
God Bless 🙂
