Fountain prevails in Cameron Parish run-off voting

Curtis Fountain mustered enough support Saturday to take the win in Cameron Parish's run-off election for the police jury's District 1 seat, breaking an extremely rare tie vote cast in November.

Fountain got 224 votes Saturday to 195 for his opponent, incumbent District 1 Police Juror Sonny McGee, according to Cameron Parish Clerk of Court Carl Broussard.

In the November election, both candidates parlayed for a combined 356 votes — exactly 178 votes each.
