Jimmy Inman defeated incumbent Cody Ludwig Saturday to win the District D seat on the Covington City Council.
Complete but unofficial returns show Inman had 61% of the vote. Voter turnout was just over 35%.
Inman and Ludwig had finished first and second in the four-candidate primary last month to make Saturday's runoff election. The District D seat was the lone municipal race on the ballot in Covington. All other offices — mayor and six City Council positions — were won by candidates who ultimately ran unopposed.
Ludwig, a Covington native, is finishing her first term in office. She won the seat four years ago with no challengers.
Inman, a longtime teacher and coach in St. Tammany public schools, said he wants to help grow the local economy, while pushing greater transparency and accountability in government.
