After 37 years in office, the 80-year-old mayor of Simmesport, La., is looking forward to another four-year term.
"I've got more energy than some of those teenagers," Leo L. Ehrhardt Sr. said after Saturday's election.Complete but unofficial results gave him a 30-vote victory over the Rev. C.A. Harris, 406-376. Results won't be official until later this week, when voting machines are opened in this town of nearly 2,300 people about 130 miles northwest of Baton Rouge.
