The mayor of Rayne has officially turned in his resignation, effective December 31, 2012. James "Jimbo" Petijean was elected to become Acadia Parish Assessor, effective January 1, 2013. This allows the city to call for an election for the position. The current mayor says he hopes for a November election, so there will be no extra cost to hold a special election.
