Five years after making a claim of gender discrimination against the Baton Rouge City Constable’s office, Terrica Williams returns to the agency on Wednesday, taking on the role of constable.
Williams, who previously worked in the constable’s office from 2009 to 2013, is taking the top spot from Constable Reginald Brown, who served in the office since 2001 and did not seek re-election. Williams, a Democrat, was elected Dec. 8 in a runoff against Republican candidate Gordon “Trey” Bargas.
“I’m excited. I’m so ready to get back to what I love doing,” said Williams, 46. “Just walking through the halls, I feel comfortable, at ease and know this is a great opportunity for myself and the employees.”
