Lafayette Consolidated Government will be getting some help from a well-known former lawmaker who will work in a voluntary capacity.

Josh Guillory has asked Simone Champagne to serve on his transition team as the chairwoman of the Contract Review Committee.

She is serving with the full support of Youngsville Mayor Ken Ritter.

Champagne is the Chief Administrative Officer of Youngsville.

Guillory says that she will be reviewing all of the existing contracts to look for anything that might be redundant.

Champagne's other goals include looking for any unneeded costs, any unrealized cost savings, and she will also focus on whether or not she contracts can be renegotiated to save the taxpayers money.

The former Lafayette Mayor-President candidate spoke often about these very issues during the campaign.
