Stacy Head Squeaks By in City Council Election
Unofficial results indicate that Stacy Head edged out Cynthia Willard-Lewis for the right to represent the entire city on the City Council yesterday. Head, a current councilwoman who represents District B, won by 281 votes, according to the state Secretary of State's office. Results of the close election will be certified later this week, and Willard-Lewis told WWL-TV that she plans to request a recount. Turnout was about 23.5 percent, according to the Secretary of State's office.
Head claimed victory in a race that saw her huge 12-point margin from the primary evaporate. Head had a huge fundraising advantage throughout the week, which was on full display in her glossy TV ads, and ubiquitious campaign lit that seemed to multiply in spades as Election Day drew closer.
In the primary Willard-Lewis had to duke it out with a fellow African American candidate from New Orleans East, Austin Badon. Willard-Lewis also picked up the endorsement of Mayor Mitch as the runoff race wound down, providing her with a jolt of attention. The victory sees Head, a relative newcomer who was first elected in 2006, defeating a longtime state legislator and councilwoman in Willard-Lewis. The result also continues a turn away from a long-held New Orleans trend of having the at-large Council seats split between African-American and white pols.
If the results favoring Head hold, yet another special election will have to be held to fill Head's seat.
