I am a proud citizen of Shreveport-Bossier and I love living here, but we can always make it better! I'm personally tired of people dogging on where we live. It's to the point where you want to say, 'If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.' So let's get off our tails and do something about it because no one will do it for us.

And make no mistake, WE need to do something about it. We can't lay this all at our leaders' feet and expect them to fix it. What we can do is pitch in and help ourselves, get more active in the community, and then elect leaders who will do what needs to be done and then hold them accountable. Keep in mind, we have a lot of federal COVID funds coming to the area. We need to make sure it doesn't disappear or get misused because of a lack of oversight.

Now keep in mind, we can always use more community outreach and events.  More green spaces and play areas and festivals would also be wonderful! Another thing that we should always do is support our law enforcement agencies. I think it's a given that yes, we have a crime issue. And yes, we need more cops on the road to curtail it, but we also need to provide opportunities, education, job training, etc... as an alternative to a life of crime. So, without further ado, let's get into the list and you can tell me if I'm an idiot after reading through these.
