There are five candidates that are running to be Lafayette's next Mayor/President.

Local attorney Josh Guillory says that he has lived his life knowing that he is meant to serve the public, and he wants his next public service role to be that of the leader of Lafayette.

Guillory knows that the city and parish of Lafayette will be facing some major challenges in the near future, and he believes that prioritizing those needs will lead to a better, more efficient government.

He says it's about the basics. Guillory wants to put the money towards drainage, infrastructure and safety needs before addressing any other issues.
