SLIDELL, La. (AP) - Slidell’s mayor and police chief have won second terms without campaigning.

Neither Mayor Freddy Drennan nor Police Chief Randy Smith had an opponent when qualifying for the April 5 election ended Friday.

Both are Republicans.

Drennan says he’s happy he can concentrate on his job instead of having to campaign.

Smith says the lack of opposition shows people think he and his officers are doing a good job.
