Bossier City, in fact the entire Shreveport-Bossier City area, owe a debt of gratitude to George Dement.
Under his administration as the mayor of Bossier City, many of the landmarks we enjoy today were conceived and constructed.
It's an impressive list: the CenturyLink Center, the Louisiana Boardwalk, the Arthur Ray Teague Parkway and the first riverboat casinos.
Mr. Dement served four terms as mayor starting in 1989. It was a time of tremendous growth in Bossier City, growth residents are still benefiting from today.
George Dement died January 12th. He was 91. He left is mark on Bossier City.
I'm James Smith.
