OPELOUSAS, La. (KLFY)- Incumbent Bill Fontenot was reelected Saturday as St. Landry Parish president.
Fontenot, a Democrat, won in a runoff with 53% (15,284) of the vote against Independent candidate Ken Marks, who is a St. Landry Parish Council member.
Fontenot has served as parish president for eight years.
“I think I should continue because as a civil engineer and doing government work for many many years, I do realize it takes a while to complete projects,” Fontenot told The Daily World before the Nov. 16 election.
