Voters in Carencro will decide whether they want to keep Mayor Glenn Brasseaux or replace him with challenger Charlotte Clavier.

Brasseaux is hoping to win his fifth term as Mayor. During the November primary, he trailed eight votes behind Clavier.

“I have a dedicated record of experience and dedication of creating new jobs and continued investment in infrastructure. We’ve spent millions of dollars on drainage projects since the flood of 2012,” Brasseaux said.

Clavier is also a familiar face to politics and Carencro City Hall. She served as Mayor Pro-Temp from 2000 to 2004.

“I love my community and I want to serve my community. I just want to move my community forward,” Clavier said.

Brasseaux says Carencro is booming. He believes working closely with the council and the community is what helps Carencro move forward.

“We’ve had tremendous growth in residential and commercial. I-49 is getting a lot of attention with the FedEx, Old Dominion, Super1 Foods,” Brasseaux said.

Clavier wants to build off the administration’s success. She also wants to create a task force to formulate a master plan for Carencro.

“Roads, infrastructure, drainage, public service, recreation, things for the kids. That kind of thing,” said Clavier.

Both candidates are optimistic about the future of their city and are hopeful residents will head to the polls.

“I hate politics, but I hope the people will allow me to continue doing what I do everyday. We work real hard,” Brasseaux said.

“Carencro is an amazing community and it’s been a very pleasant election. Everyone has been so kind,” said Clavier.
