A Baton Rouge Councilwoman is telling kids in the Capital City to pull up their pants.
C. Denise Marcell she says she wants kids in Baton Rouge to be as sucessfull as they can - but they're wardrobe might be in the way. Now - she's trying to get a resolution passed in council.
It's called Low pants - No chance. The message is to tell kids who sag their pants they're hurting their futures.
But not everyone's on board. We spoke with someone who says sagging pants is comfortable for some - and doesn't dictate how employable a person is.
Marcelle is taking her campaign to Counci Wednesday afternoon. She says several businesses in her district have promised to kick people who wear saggy pants out of their stores.
