2nd Circuit Court Upholds Mayor Perkins' Disqualification To Run For Re-election
PERKINS APPEAL UPDATE - A Louisiana appeals court has upheld a lower court finding that the mayor of Shreveport cannot run for reelection this fall because he used the wrong address when he signed up for the race. Monday's ruling is the latest in a lawsuit that says Mayor Adrian Perkins did not use the address where he claims a homestead tax exemption when he signed up to run for reelection as the law requires. He used another address in a different part of the city. The issue is expected to wind up before the state Supreme Court. Perkins has until noon Wednesday to file the appeal.
