PORT ALLEN, La. (AP) - Port Allen Mayor-elect Demetric Slaughter says she believes the community's need for change was a main factor in her win Saturday in the runoff election against incumbent Roger Bergeron.
Slaughter defeated Bergeron by capturing 55 percent of the votes cast, according to unofficial results from the Louisiana Secretary of State's Office.
Slaughter said she has not heard from Bergeron since she won the election, but intended to reach out to him later this week.
During her campaign, Slaughter said establishing better policies with human resources would be her priority if elected.
Slaughter declined to say Monday whether she will make any administrative changes once she takes office in January.
