Local elections set
It took longer than expected to fully finalize, but the qualifying for Screven County’s municipal elections is set.
What held up the completion was the Newington race for the position of mayor. There was a challenge being made about one of the potential qualifiers.
A decision was made by Judge Debbie Brown that only one of those qualifying for mayor would be accepted.
That would be for current mayor Albert S. Perkins. With Perkins and the two qualifying for council seats having no oppostion, no election will be held in Newington on Nov. 7 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Brian Barrs qualified for Council Post #1 and Sandra Roberts qualified for Council Post #2.
In Sylvania, three council seats will be on the ballot and four candidates have qualified – two incumbents and two political newcomers. Incumbents Tripp Sheppard, who is the current mayor pro tem, and Clint Williams qualified. Craig Lariscy and Wallis E. “Eddie” Lovett also have qualified.
In Rocky Ford, a general election will be held for the purpose of the election of mayor and three town council members.
Two have qualified to oppose each other for mayor – Danny Burke and incumbent Ken Mock. Three have qualified for the three council seats – Andrew Dudley, Samantha Forehand and Willette Mock.
