In the article relative to the traffic light cameras in the city of Lafayette, I find Councilman Jay Castille’s remark about representing the voters to be quite interesting.
Most assuredly it should be glaringly obvious that such automated electronic traffic-control devices are extremely unpopular with the voters and would most certainly be voted out if the populace were allowed to vote on them.
If the Lafayette City-Parish Council wants to truly represent their constituents and make the right decision on this matter, why don’t they simply vote the cameras out. Does the term “cash cow” ring a bell?
