For the first time in eight years, West Lafayette’s mayoral race has two candidates. Zachary Baiel is running as an independent on a platform focused on transparency in local government. Does West Lafayette need more transparency? How will having a challenger change the campaign landscape in the city?

And new candidates have entered the race for city council. How will that impact the relationship between the council and the mayor’s office?

We put those questions to John Dennis this week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor.

Also on this week’s show, how does the closing of Harrison Bridge for a Fourth of July fireworks show affect West Lafayette? And is heavy rainfall impacting construction around the city?
