After receiving evidence on challenges filed to the candidacy of three city council candidates on September 3rd, City Election Superintendent Michelle Riley has issued findings in two of those cases. In the challenge related to candidate Eric Langston, Ms. Riley determined that Mr. Langston is qualified to seek and hold city council Post 2. In the challenge to candidate Zachary Collins, she determined that Mr. Collins is not qualified to seek the same Post 2. Both challenges were made on the basis of the residency of the candidates for the period prescribed by Georgia law to seek the office.
A determination on challenges filed against candidate Kevin Lashley is expected to be issued tomorrow, September 5th.
