After a three-year campaign, the Lafayette Advertising Board has concluded that Lafayette’s current advertising posters are not in compliance with the law and are not appropriate for use in a local election.

“Lafayette is a small community of just over 300,000 people,” said board member Jim Kocher.

“And, if we’re not doing our jobs, what are we doing?”

Kocher says the board has determined that a new poster is the best way to go.

“A new poster that is printed in the most accurate way that we can find is going to be more cost effective for us, and that is what we’re going to do,” Kochel said.

“It’s not a one-size-fits-all poster.

It’s not the poster that’s going to work for everybody,” he said.

Kochel says Lafayette is now asking for input from the community on the new posters and how they would look.

He says the new poster will be more affordable to the average person and it will be able to meet the needs of the community.

“If you are going to go down to the corner store and buy some flyers, you’re not going to get them for the price you’re paying at the corner,” KOCHER said.

The board says they are currently working on a cost estimate, but they want to be sure that the new sticker will be effective.
