Baker, La (NBC33) — Mayor Harold Rideau re-elected to a third term in Baker.
Rideau won by about 150 votes Saturday night.
Mayor Rideau says he plans to focus on expanding the city farther than it's seven square mile mark.
He says getting more jobs means more houses in the city.
"Retail businesses basically come in based on rooftops, and so we need to concentrate on bringing jobs and the kind of jobs I'm looking at bringing are manufacturing type jobs," said Mayor Rideau.
