Save Yourself - They Won't

   Who are we?

Darrell's background includes 17 years experience in the Military and Law Enforcement fields. He was elected Mayor of Lafayette in November, 2006. He was sworn in January, 2007. In April, 2007, when the council refused to follow the city charter, he resigned. Despite the rumors, he did not quit under council threat. (Although they did threaten him). He quit because he realized that if he was really going to live up to his campaign ideals, he would not be able to do it sitting as Mayor. Angela always tells him he can’t complain if he isn’t involved. Besides, she told him she thought being Mayor would be fun. A distraction if you will. Boy, was it fun.

Angela has a background in professional design and administration of policies, accounting, purchasing and database design.

We both are registered as non-partisan. There are two reasons for this. Our philosophies run a little to the left and a little to the right. It also cuts way back on the number of political advertising we receive.

We believe that as citizens, you should have access to the same information that legislators, including the city councilors, do. If they are making a decision that impacts you, you should know what information they used to make that decision.

We believe you should have access to the knowledge of where your money goes. All of it. Not just the accounting that they choose to provide. We believe they should account for every dime in out.

We believe in the core value of being a public servant. We have served others with that belief. We expect nothing less from our public officials.
