CARLSBAD, NEW MEXICO - A billboard is causing controversy in Carlsbad.

It reads "Bud Light. Our kind of town."

The local DWI coordinator for Eddy County says it sends the wrong message about the community.

While she understands, the need for companies to advertise she just wishes it wasn't right at the main entrance to town.

A real estate agent and co-chair of Keep Carlsbad Beautiful, says she doesn't like the billboard's message either.
