Parish President Joey Durel can be seen on GMA every Thursday around 6:40am to answer your questions. This week Joey Durel answered the following questions, please watch the video attached to hear the answers.
1) The Oklahoma City mayor was in town last night for the Annual Chamber of Commerce banquet. What were your takeaways from hearing his speech-what can Lafayette learn from Oklahoma City?
2) I hear Lafayette is in the running for another contest, and votes are needed. Tell us about that:
The city of Lafayette was a finalist in the Mayors Challenge for Bloomberg Philanthropies. Bloomberg decided to do a side contest-with the winning city receiving a $50,000 grant from IBM and featured coverage in the Huffington Post! Voting is open until March 6, 2013. There is only one vote per person allowed. To demonstrate the pride in the community go to http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/19/vote-mayors-challenge-fan_n_2716857.html?utm_hp_ref=fb&src=sp&comm_ref=false .
