Meet the Candidates
Posted at 4:19 PM, Oct 10, 2019

Two candidates are seeking election to the District 2 seat on the new Lafayette City Council: Bruce Conque is listed as No Party and Andre "Andy" Naquin is listed as a Republican.

Lafayette voters decided last year to de-consolidate the Lafayette City-Parish Council. Now everyone in the parish will vote on a new parish council member, and people living in the city limits will vote on both a parish council member and a city council member.
