When is coming to the Park Theater? Why do we need a ? Is Lafayette really getting a ?
These are some of the questions that will face incoming city council members come November, after this year’s city council elections.
Council member Carl Anduri, Vice Mayor Mike Anderson and Mayor Carol Federighi all face the end of their respective terms, leaving Lafayette wondering who, if anyone, will be stepping forward to challenge the incumbents. Mayor Federighi announced at Monday night's meeting of the council that she will not be seeking re-election in November.
The nomination period for the election begins July 16 and ends Friday August 10. However, if an incumbent does not file by August 10, the deadline will be extended to August 15.
Candidates are encouraged to make an appointment for a meeting with City Clerk Joanne Robbins (284-1968) to go over the paperwork required for running. Apparently there’s a lot.
To run, candidates must be a Lafayette resident, 18 years or older and be registered to vote in Lafayette.
Lafayette will have the chance to choose their leaders on Nov. 6, election day.
So which of Lafayette’s most steadfast citizens are pondering a run for the council? We haven’t heard of any, yet, but if you know something we don’t, please let us know.
