Reggie Thomas has been elected as Lafayette City Marshal for the next six years.

According to complete but unofficial results from Saturday’s election, Thomas was the top vote-getter with 51% compared with 49% received by Kip Judice. There was only a 274 vote margin.

The two men emerged from the November primary election as the top vote-getters in a field of four candidates.

The election of Thomas, 54, is historic. He is the first Black person elected to a city-wide position in Lafayette.
