Fields unopposed for re-election

Updated:

PINEVILLE, La. (AP) - Pineville Mayor Clarence Fields has been re-elected when qualifying for the mayor's race ended Friday without him drawing a challenger.

The Town Talk reports that this is the third straight time Fields has been re-elected unopposed.

Among the issues Pineville faces in Fields' next term as mayor are budgetary challenges brought on by rising costs in areas such as insurance and pensions, and economic development opportunities.

Fields has been mayor since December 1999, when he was appointed off the City Council following the resignation of Leo Deslatte.

He won a special election to finish Deslatte's term in 2000 with 66 percent of the vote. In 2002, running for his first full term as mayor, Fields won with 79 percent of the vote. He was unopposed in 2006 and 2010.
