ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - Catherine Davidson has been elected as the President of the Alexandria City Council in a unanimous vote. There were no other nominees.

Davidson was also officially sworn into the Alexandria City Council District 4 seat. She won the seat with 51% of the vote in a runoff election against Lizzie Felter on Dec. 11.

“I’m excited and humbled. I’m humbled to continue serving,” Davidson said. “I really love Alexandria. I think it is a fabulous and wonderful city. We have a lot of work to do. I’m excited that the council has that much faith in me. I believe that we have a great rest of the year, like I said in my speech, to really move Alexandria forward.”

Jim Villard was elected as Vice President of the Alexandria City Council in a 4-3 vote. Reddex Washington was also nominated for that position.

The council also passed two ordinances regarding upcoming events that will be voted on at the next meeting. Those ordinances involve allowing Mayor Jeff Hall to enter into contracts for Downtown Rocks and Alexandria River Fete. Both of those events have not been held since 2019.
