District D Endorsement

First of all, I would like to thank all those who supported me and voted for me in the primary election. I appreciate all of your votes, thoughts, efforts, and prayers. This has been an amazing experience and I have learned so much about myself and about this beautiful city that I am proud to call my home.

Early in this race I promised the Republican Party leadership that I would be willing to stand up for what was right- even when no one else would. It is with this promise in mind that I make my official endorsement in the District D City Council race. It would be very easy to do what many expect of me, and endorse the Republican in the run-off, but I believe in my heart that there is a better option for the voters in District D.

I have listened to both of the remaining candidates and their ideas and beliefs throughout the campaign, and I have spoken with both of them since the primary in order to determine who would receive my support in the run-off. Today, I unreservedly give my full support to Phillip Templeton. He is the true conservative left in this race. Phillip has vast experience in public service and a proven track record of working to make Shreveport a better place.

I urge those that supported me, my fellow Republicans, and all of District D- to look past party lines and to vote for the person who truly cares about Shreveport and all her citizens. I urge you to please vote for Phillip Templeton as our next City Councilman for District D.

Car Lot Corbin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MICHAEL CORBIN CAMPAIGN FUNDED BY SPECIAL INTERESTS

Campaign Finance Reports Show Corbin Backed

By Car Lot Investor

In July of 2009, the citizens of Spring Lake fought against a used car lot being placed in front of their neighborhood. They took their pleas to the Shreveport City Council, where District D Councilman Bryan Wooley stood up for them- denying the zoning request that would have allowed the used car lot to be built.

Residents may have thought that the fight against the used car lot was over, but it has recently been discovered that Michael Corbin, who is seeking to replace Councilman Wooley, is being funded by the very person behind this car lot. Through a combination of corporations and family members, property owner James Ballangee has bankrolled nearly half of Corbin’s campaign for City Council.

Corbin’s opponent, Republican Deanna Candler, had the following to say about this revelation:

“The people of District D and especially those who live in Spring Lake Subdivision, deserve to know who is paying for Michael Corbin’s campaign. When a politician owes their election to special interests, the people that they are supposed to be serving are the ones that suffer.”

Copies of Michael Corbin’s Campaign Finance Reports have been attached to can be found here. Ballangee’s connections to the various LLCs can be checked through the Louisiana Secretary of State’s Website.
