Meredith Starks’ class had been discussing the election and her students had a lot of questions about what exactly the mayor does.

It was a teachable moment that led to students writing letters to the newly elected mayor, but rather than simply pick them up, Chandler paid a visit to answer their questions in person.

Questions ran the gamut, from why he ran for mayor and what changes he plans to implement to the possibility of a baseball field being built in south Bossier.  

As for his favorite book and animal, Chandler answered “the Bible” and his “four Chihuahuas.”

The patriotic visit ended with Chandler handing out American flags and posing for pictures with his young constituents.
