The only officially announced candidate for Lafayette City Parish Mayor/President's job is Carlee Alm-Labar, and she has now announced her campaign manager.

Lafayette native Molly Richard has been hired as Alm-Labar's campaign manager, and Alm-Labar says it was really made possible by the $150,000 that has flowed into her election campaign fund.

Carlee Alm-Laber has this to say about Richard,

Molly is incredibly talented, hard working, and organized. With more than 50 campaign volunteers already signed up to walk neighborhoods and make phone calls, we couldn't wait any longer to bring her on.

Richard most recently was working for the group CivilSource.

She has held many positions including being the first Market Manager for the Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market at Moncus Park. She has also worked for Catholic Services of Acadiana, and she has given her time to a variety of community projects.
