It`s official, the City of Shreveport has a new mayor. Cedric Glover beat opponent Jerry Jones taking 53 percent of the vote. "I want to first thank God. He`s been so good to me and to my wife and to my family in helping us to endure this wonderful journey," Glover said. Tuesday night Cedric Glover made history, becoming Shreveport`s first black mayor. With all 131 precincts reporting, Glover received 35,175 votes compared to Jones` 30,646. "We have a wonderful city with so many wonderful people," Glover said in his victory speech. "We can`t leave anybody behind. So as we look toward the future, we do it from a perspective of having one Shreveport, a greater Shreveport, a better Shreveport. We`ll do it together." Glover has one year left in his term as state representative. A special election will have to be held to fill his seat.
