Former Kenner Police official Mike Sigur and Bill Schwertz, the former owner of a real estate business, are headed into a run-off to determine which of them will represent District 2 on the Kenner City Council.
Sigur had a healthy lead as the votes came in Saturday night, with 771 voters casting ballots for him and giving him about 45.5 percent of the vote. Schwertz, who has run for the seat twice unsuccessfully, received 489 votes, or 28.8 percent of the total.
Coming in third was Ronnie Yenni, a small business owner, who received 436 votes or 25.7 percent of the total.
The District 2 seat covers the area east of Louis Armstrong International Airport and the area north of Interstate 10 and south of West Esplanade Avenue. A small sliver extends north to Vintage Drive.
The winner of the run-off will replace Councilman Joe Stagni, who was prevented from running again due by term limits.
Sigur, seen as an ally of Mayor Mike Yenni, said he would bring his law enforcement experience to the council and said it is important the city continue working on its sewerage and drainage systems.
Schwertz also said it is important the city continue working on sewerage and drainage issues and promised to fight to ensure all future city borrowing be put to a vote of the people.
