Ruston leaders must act quickly to fill vacancy

Posted: Updated:

RUSTON, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The city of Ruston has to act by Monday to fill the seat of Alderman Elmore Mayfield. Mayfield died June 23rd.

At last Monday's regular meeting, the board approved a resolution recognizing Mayfield's contributions to the district. He was appointed in April 1993 to fill the unexpired term of former alderman J. R. Stringer.

The following fall, Mayfield won election to the seat and was unopposed in every subsequent race. The board must fill the seat within 20 days of a member's death.
