After listing the progress made during his term, Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux announced he will not seek re-election in a press conference today.
“I have done what I was elected to do, and have decided not to seek re-election this fall. I will continue to push through important initiatives that I mentioned earlier. I will serve the remaining nine months of my term with the same level of dedication and effort.”
The presser ended shortly after Robideaux made those comments. He refused to take any questions and left the room. Robideaux was elected in October 4, 2015.
