$23 M bond issue election on 10/19/13 ballot.

On 9/24/2013 The BNA has invited Mr. Woody Wilson to speak to to us concerning the upcoming $23 million bond issue on the ballot at the next election on 10/19/2013. Audience questions will follow the presentation. We’ll have 1 tray of finger wrap sandwiches available for folks w/ the munchies.

Woody Wilson is the administrator for the Caddo Parish Commission. My own request is we should work w/ Mayor Glover & the emergency prep folks to install loud air raid sirens to warn of coming twisters or other severe weather conditions. Victims who perished at Albert Pike campground in the Ouachita Mountains 6/10 might be alive if there were proper warning devices, ie, sirens, to awaken ‘em. Sending a tweet, twit, or e-m didn’t help much in the middle of the night. Let us at least discuss this important safety feature as part of the bond.

Your consideration is quite welcome.

7:15 PM, here come the judges! Lou moderates the Court of Appeal judicial forum.

Each candidate has an opening & closing statement. ?? will alternate so that each is replying about half the time. I’ll keep time. We’ll work out specifics time allotment as David & Frances deem most appropriate. We should wrap @ 8:00-8:15 PM. A lot depends upon the crowd’s asking?? Am uncertain how that will go, but usually BNA folks are rather inquisitive, considering the juvenile judges’ forum a few years back.
