‘Big Tent’ Event Moved To Next Week
The 'Big Tent' event being put on by the 'Carlee for Lafayette' campaign has been rescheduled to Tuesday, July 23 because people are trying to clean up after the storm.
The 'Big Tent' series will be a format where the public is invited in to give their views about issues and topics that are important to them while candidate for Mayor/President Carlee Alm-Labar outlines her plans if elected.
One topic that is likely on everytone's minds, is drainage; and that will be the focus of the event coming up Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Cajundome Convention Center.
All of the events are free, but the organizers asked that if you plan to attend that you register because space is limited.
This will not be the only 'Big Tent' event. Other events about different issues will follow.
Alm-Labar says, in reference to drainage,
'The parish needs a clear, coordinated, and comprehensive plan to combat flooding. And parish voters deserve to understand the differences in the approaches that the candidates for mayor-president will take on drainage policy. Our campaign is ready to lead that discussion so we can hit the ground running in January with implementation."
Alm-Labar says the 'Big Tent' series is meant to encourage people to get involved in important discussions for Lafayette.
She says she believes that better answers will come from face to face discussions.
