“Having served as a community advocate in Crowley for several years, I realize there are many concerns of the citizens of Ward III such as the safety issues, the drainage problems and the cleanliness of our community. In addition, I feel Ward III has the potential for more urban development. By promoting and supporting existing business, it could be a draw for new and upcoming businesses. Also, I feel the continual renovation of the Martin Luther King Building is vital to the recreational and educational growth of our children. Our children are our future, therefore, we must invest in them,” said Mayfield.
Mayfield, 38, is the proud father of three children, Lexie Mone’ Mayfield, 15, of Houston, Texas; Christopher Mayfield, Jr., 4, and Braylon Mayfield, 1, both of Crowley; with fiancee Beulah M. Reed. He is the son of Judy (Mayfield) Martin and the late Junius Mayfield. He was reared in Crowley by his mother and step-father, Lester Martin, Jr.
