In Duson, the five alderman will be:  Carroll Pepper, Carolyn “Pepe” Richard, “Steve” Hanks, Coby Duhon, and Wade Robin.

In Scott, Jan-Scott Richard has won the mayoral race by 23 votes, ousting Mayor Purvis Morrison. Chief of Police Chad Leger has kept his position by getting 82% of the vote.

Also in Scott, Troy Bergeron has been elected council member at large after getting 80% of the vote. The District 3 council member will be Danny Hollier.

In Broussard, “Ray” Bourque will be the next mayor, after receiving 89% of the vote. Police Chief Brannon Decou will keep his position after getting 82% of the vote.

Former Broussard Mayor Charles Langlinais, who had hoped to continue in city administration by being the councilman-at-large, was defeated by Jeff Delahoussaye.

In Youngsville, “Lindy” Bolgiano, Mathew Romero, and Gary Williams were elected to the council.

The fantasy sports item was on every voter’s ballot state-wide, but each parish is deciding the issue individually. A vote for it would permit online fantasy sports betting contests in the voter’s parish; a vote against it would not allow online fantasy sports betting contests in the voter’s parish.

Lafayette voters approved the measure, 57 percent to 43 percent. This is a new development for Lafayette, a parish that historically has always voted against gambling in large numbers.

Both tax propositions in Lafayette have failed, both only getting 26% of the vote. The propositions would have fully funded the Jail and Courthouse.
