With the Shreveport Mayoral election fast approaching, all the candidates are working to get their message out to the voters.  And KEEL News is helping you get to know each candidate over the next few weeks.  We've invited each candidate to come into the KEEL News studio for one hour to answer questions and share their visions for the future of Shreveport.

Each mayoral candidate will get one hour in studio with Mike & McCarty between Monday, October 17th, and November 4th.  Invitations have gone out to all 10 candidates, and most have responded.  There will be no set questions, the candidates will not get any questions in advance, and different candidates will get different questions.

How to Submit Your Questions to the Candidates

If you'd like to ask the candidates questions, you can submit your questions through the Shreveport Security Systems Message Board accessible through the KEEL App.  The app is available as a free download through the Apple App Store or Google Play.
