"Joey Durel says he's conservative, but he's liberal with your money."
Democrat Mike Stagg, who is vying to unseat City-Parish President Joey Durel on Oct. 22, has taken his campaign to the Internet, releasing a commercial on the video-sharing website YouTube that takes Durel to task for what Stagg characterizes as cronyism.
"Joey Durel says he's conservative, but he's liberal with your money," Stagg says at the beginning of the 30-second spot, which goes on to accuse his Republican opponent of breaking promises on the awarding of contracts with Lafayette Consolidated Government (see the full commercial below).
This isn't the first time Stagg has given Durel the proverbial business in a YouTube video. Last May the independent IT consultant released a much longer video titled "Lafayette Sucker Tax" critical of LCG's trash-disposal contract with Allied.
