TRSL Board receives District 7 election results, run-off forthcoming
April 9, 2021
Baton Rouge— At its April meeting, the TRSL Board of Trustees received voting results for the District 7 special election. Because no candidate received more than 50% of the vote, a run-off election will be held between the top two candidates who received the most votes in the primary.
Moving forward in the run-off election will be Suzanne Breaux (Vermilion Parish Schools) with 50% of the vote and Kelly Allen, M.A. (St. Mary Parish Schools) with 25.14% of the vote. Vicki Chauvin Guilbeau (Lafayette Parish Schools) received 24.86% of the vote.
Voting information for the run-off election will be mailed to eligible voters on April 19, and the deadline to vote is 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 19. Run-off results will be announced at the TRSL board meeting in June. The candidate receiving the most votes will take the oath of office and represent TRSL members in District 7 for the remainder of the four-year term which ends December 31, 2022.
District 7 includes actively working TRSL members in the parishes of Acadia, Calcasieu, Cameron, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Mary, and Vermilion.
