SPECIAL EVENT – THE CHARTER AMENDMENT: FOR AND AGAINST
The debate over Lafayette's home rule charter has been white hot for a while now. And in less than a month, voters will be deciding whether or not the charter is "fixed" to use the words of supporters. However, there has been a steady amount of opposition with various reasons the charter shouldn't be touched.
We are bringing both sides together for an on-air event LIVE on NewsTalk 96.5 KPEL hosted by Rob Kirkpatrick and Bernadette Lee. The Charter Amendment: For and Against will air live this Wednesday starting at 5pm.
We have had both sides on Acadiana's Morning News, but never at the same time. Kevin Blanchard will speak on behalf of the group Fix The Charger and Lafayette resident Andy Hebert will speak for the opposition. The format for the show will be as follows:
Hour 1: Both sides will present their perspective. Rob and Bernie will ask questions.
Hour 2: Callers will be invited to voice their opinions and ask questions of each guest by calling the studio at 337-232-1542.
