Angelic Moore is seeking a legislative seat that represents both Buckhead and Historic Brookhaven.

The new city has two years to repay DeKalb's elections division, which administered the election.
Brookhaven hasn't even officially become a city yet (that happens at 12:01 am on Monday, Dec. 17), but one of its first bills is already on the way. Neighbor Newspapers is reporting that the cost of Brookhaven's runoff special election will be between $35,000 and $40,000. County elections director H. Maxine Daniels told the paper the bill includes the costs of ballots, administration, staff and security. According to Daniels, the Nov. 6 general election was held in conjunction with the general election. The Dec. 4 runoff was a standalone event for the city, so it will have to shoulder the costs. The city of Brookhaven has about 30,000 registered voters. It has two years to pay DeKalb County back for the election. Related Items: Patch's …
