Future of Shreveport PAC – Strikes!
by Marion Marks
If you haven’t checked your mail from yesterday, October 28, and found this flyer, you missed the latest entry into the Mud-Slinging capital mayoral campaign. Future of Shreveport is the latest entry into the mayoral fray, probably behind Patrick Williams, as they attempt to destroy Ollie Tyler’s campaign with an analysis of Tyler’s failures at the helm of the Caddo Parish School system.
The listed head for filing for the management team of the PAC is Shreveporter Jimmy Tyson, but amazingly approximately $34,500 in this race can all go back to the Fodale name. The smear piece is the latest, and more is supposed to be in the pipeline.
The JC Fodale Energy Services, LLC has a very interesting Shreveport name tied to it in the registered agent Alexander Mijalis, whose family name is well connected in political history.
Each of these documents and the related parties have a unique place in politics that voters will probably weigh in making their vote count. The Future of Shreveport filing happened to coincide with the day the mailer arrived. Timing for the filing after monies were spent and as the late entry seems to indicate a bit of desperation and secrecy for the parties. Interestingly the election of officers is listed on the filing as 11/4/2014.
