Watch State of Parish address live

by Leslie Turk

If you can't make it to City-Parish President Joey Durel's annual State of the Parish address today at noon at the Cajundome Convention Center, watch it live on the LCG homepage here. Additionally, Acadiana Open Channel is taping the address and will rebroadcast it five times; check The Independent Weekly and AOC's programming guide for the schedule.

The event is sold out for those wishing to have lunch, but free seats are available for the general public.

Unopposed in 2007, Durel is entering the second year of his second term. He will give an overview of his progress as mayor and will discuss future projects vital to the parish's economy and quality of life.
