BRUSLY, LA (WAFB) -
Incumbent Mayor Joey Normand is facing opposition for only

a part-time position. He says the job is more of a public service because the

the candidates have been well behaved. "It's been a very positive campaign,
"says Daigle. "The residents have been very receptive to my platform and I've
