Eight CAO candidates and counting

Boy, three more resumes and the race for the Shreveport CAO job will look like the mayor’s race: 11 candidates.

Stephone Taylor, administrator for the Texas Gulf Coast city of Anahuac, and Jeron Rogers, former Caddo Parish public works director, have joined six other contenders for the city’s top appointed position.

Rogers – who had sued the parish in 2005 claiming he was wrongfully terminated – also unsuccessfully applied in October for the Caddo Parish administrator job after Bill Hanna retired.

Former mayoral candidate Ed Bradley – who accused now-Mayor Cedric Glover and former contender Jerry Jones of “cutting a deal” – is said to have applied for the CAO job.

But Dee Peterson, co-chair of the transition team that is screening applicants, said he hasn’t seen a resume from Bradley. I called Bradley’s cell but got his voicemail. No word back yet.

The transition team will collect resumes for CAO through tomorrow. Glover has said he would like to make a decision by Christmas.
