First of all I don't think Stephon Taylor should be the mayor. He has a felony charge againist him and the only thing he has in Ringgold is a store. He doesn't live there. I guess that doesn't even matter anymore. The town of Ringgold actually needs to stand up and pretty much fire him. What has he done for the town of Ringgold??? Nothing that I've seen. He really needs to fix that parking lot of his at his store. When they got it it wasn't that bad. They got in there and tore the parking lot up and just put concrete up there close to the store.

I am eligible to be the mayor also. doesn't mean i am qualified. Ringgold needs someone who can read and write a grant proposal and work towards getting it. Every time we have an election in this town it turns racist. Blacks want black and Whites want white. If the town came together and voted for a positive outcome it wouldn't matter the color. Ringgold has had many opportunities to gain a business that would give us jobs and the vibe of the town turns them away.

No opinion. I don't go to that store. Thank you very much. I couldn't get my car in that parking lot if I tried. Thank you very much!!! And yes, I believe they did tear their parking lot up to make another one and then they didn't have the money or didn't want to. But you know that the parking lot is aweful there too....

I don’t think you folks in that parish knows just how far behind the parish or your state is, nor do you really know just how much your neighbors laugh at the parish and city of RINGGOLD. When everything around is growing and your parish and city is 30 years behind you might should find out why. LOOK AROUND YOU NEW STUFF GOING UP DAILY IN EVERY CITY IN NORTH LOUISIANA ALL BUT ONE PARISH ITS LOOSING PEOPLE AND BUSINESS DAILY YOU FOLKS CANT BE THAT STUPID TO NOT KNOW WHY . The money is there for growth and to clean out the drugs so helping out you should see who controls the parish money . Like I say the whole parish IS A JOKE NO matter who you are or what you say you cant turn a crook to a saint it just is NOT going to happen . WITH THIS IN MIND VOTE FOR A CHANGE BECAUSE WHAT YOU HAVE THERE NOW IS NOT WORKING JUST TRY THE CHANGE FOR A WHILE YOU MITE LIKE IT . THEN NEXT YEAR MAKE THE OTHER CHANGES NEEDED IN THE PARISH ELECTIONS CANT NEVER TELL SOME ONE VOTED IN NOW MIGHT BE READY TO RUN THE PARISH NEXT YEAR BECAUSE THE PARISH IS LAUGHING STOCK OF THE STATE IT IS TIME TO STOP THE GOOD OLE BOYS STEALING AND CORRUPTION. NO ONE THAT LIVES THERE AND HAS 1/2 A BRAIN CAN SAY THAT THE CITY OF RINGGOLD AND BEINVILLE PARISH IS DOING OK WITH THE CROOKS IN OFFICES NOW .
