Councilwoman Stacy Head easily defeated small business owner Eugene Green in the race for the Division 1 at-large seat.

Head captured 62 percent of the vote, according to the Louisiana Secretary of State.

Head was a political unknown in 2006 when she was elected as the District B member of the council. She won re-election in 2010 and then was elected to an abbreviated at-large term in a special election in 2012, after Councilman Arnie Fielkow stepped down

Head said she would like to continue working to make the city’s Code Enforcement Department and Safety and Permits Department more efficient.

Head co-authored a measure passed by the council in the summer that made sweeping changes in the code enforcement laws.
