FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
All Candidates Confirmed for PACE Shreveport Mayoral Forum –Sunday, 21 September 2014
Shreveport, LA – 15 September 2014 — All six Shreveport mayoral candidates have confirmed their attendance at the PACE 2014 Shreveport Mayoral Forum. Anna Marie Arpino, Sam Jenkins, Victoria Provenza, Melvin Slack, Ollie Tyler, and Patrick Williams will all be participating in a “Question and Answer” session open to the public on Sunday (21 September 2014) from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Deaf Action Center (601 Jordan Street, Shreveport).
PACE (People Acting for Change and Equality) is a nonpartisan organization that works to advance equality in Northwest Louisiana so that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community can lead open, honest, responsible, and safe lives at home and in the workplace. We believe that the most effective way to achieve these goals is to educate our communities and to constructively participate in the political process.
A reception will follow the Q & A Forum. PACE will not be endorsing any candidate, but will simply make the views of each candidate known to our members and the public. Candidates for other offices will be recognized at the forum. Voter registration will also be available.
For more information, please contact PACE Political Director Adrienne Critcher at 318-869-3930.
