Grovetown special election set for March 19

Posted: February 10, 2013 - 12:06am

Grovetown officials have scheduled a March special election to fill an empty council seat.

Former City Councilwoman Jennifer Jones, whose term expires at the end of 2015, resigned Jan. 17, according to City Manager Shirley Beasley.

A special election is set for March 19 to fill Jones’ unexpired term.

Qualifying for the special election will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 20-12 and from 9 a.m. to noon on Feb. 22 at City Hall. The qualifying fee is $108.

Candidates must be at least 25, registered voters and have lived inside the city for at least a year.

City Council held by incumbents Sonny McDowell and Bruce Stoddard will be on the Nov. 5 ballot. Qualifying for those elections will be Aug. 26-30.

In Harlem, the mayoral seat and two seats on the City Council also will be on the Nov. 5 ballot. Those seats are currently filled by Mayor Bobby Culpepper and Councilmen John Thigpen and Rudolph Dixon.

Qualifying is slated for Aug. 26-28. The qualifying fee for the mayoral race is $144 and $108 for the council races.

No elections are scheduled in the unincorporated area of the county this year.
