Mayor Broome has released this statement about the result:
Tonight, citizens in the southeastern portion of our City-Parish made a significant statement about the future of our community.
It is unfortunate that only a portion of our community was able to participate in a decision that will ultimately affect everyone.
The most important thing is, we are still neighbors who will continue to work and live among each other. This will continue to be a diverse and inclusive community where we will grow and prosper. I will continue to represent everyone in East Baton Rouge Parish as the Mayor-President. Whether it is issues like drainage, transportation or our economy, we will have the highest level of success the more we stay united.
