Lafayette Parish Councilman Questioned About Text Message

A series of text messages shared in groups that included council members Kevin Naquin, Jay Castille, Kenneth Boudreaux, and Bruce Conque, as well as Fix the Charter PAC organizer Kevin Blanchard and Lafayette Mayor-President candidate Carlee Alm-LaBar is being questioned by the state’s attorney general. The violation can’t be prosecuted because it was discovered long past the 60-day window that state law requires to address such problems, Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Wale wrote in a July 8 memo.

“It is clear that members of the city-parish council skirted, if not outright disregarded, Louisiana’s Open Meeting Law,” Wale wrote.
