BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — The outgoing mayor of a north Louisiana city is providing office space at City Hall for the candidate who defeated him.
The Shreveport Times reports that Bossier City Mayor Lorenz Walker is also providing the mayor-elect, Tommy Chandler, full access to city staff and resources.
Walker lost his bid for a fifth term to Chandler in a March 20 election.
Both men are Republicans. Walker said an orderly transition is in the city's best interest.
Chandler takes office in July. He has said his first priority will be to meet with the heads of all city departments.
