2018 Candidates Positions on Lake Development

With the municipal election soon upon us, the LWRA again approached all candidates and asked them to declare their views on the preservation and development of our lakes.  We specifically asked them to sign a pledge (attached below) to support what we believe are key points, and to return it by October 1st, 2018.
