Rose McCullough created a major stir last Friday in her district while campaigning for reelection for the District A seat of Shreveport City Council. Voters should hear for themselves her beliefs about what she has done for her district in the last four years. The altercation was near the corner of ML King Drive and Lanier Street. (The Video Clip)
All road improvement money for District A last year was spent on a two streets, Carver Place ($370,000) and the street named for Rose’s father, Hersey D. Wilson Drive ($2,700,000). She indicates this of no consequence that others question why other streets got no improvements. It is her description of “Economic Development” for her district that is also questionable.
Ms McCullough’s apparent lack of conscience and disrespect for others whose streets are in need of repair was a problem to those she spoke to on the video.
These residents were trying to ask Rose about how this created meaningful jobs for her constituents. Her response also appears disrespectful and concluded by driving away and blowing her horn as she left.
Ms McCullough’s condition during this show should allow voters an opportunity to see for themselves how she behaves in public while campaigning. Her loud, agitated and tone-deaf responses might appear on a police report indicating “under the influence” in some jurisdictions.
There are other candidates on the ballot, fortunately, in the race for District A on the city council. We can only hope citizens of this district see an incumbent campaigning like this as less than acceptable.
