City of Brookhaven ELECTIONS
As an adult, there aren't many things in our lives where we can call 'Do Over', but with our recent elections a 'Do Over' happens on December 4th.
I suspect you're like me and just plain weary of this election cycle. The majority of voters approved a referendum to form the City of Brookhaven on July 31. We still don't have our city.
I'm tired of yard signs. I'm tired of robo-calls. And I'm tired of mailers.
But thanks to Georgia law, on December 4th, those who didn't win the election for mayor and city council get a 'Do Over' and a clean slate. The vote you cast last week no longer matters.
Rebecca Chase Williams won 45% of our vote for Council District #1, and her opponent 19%. You guessed it, on December 4th the loser gets a 'Do Over'
J Max Davis won 48% of the vote to become our first mayor, while his opponent gleaned 36%. Once again, the loser will get a 'Do Over'.
The December 4th election will be about who comes to the polls. What happened last week gets tossed out the window, and the voters that come to the poll on Tuesday, December 4 will get to elect our officials.
In Georgia, you have to win twice to be elected. So put Tuesday, December 4th on your calendar and re-affirm your vote for mayor and city council.
