Posted: August 30, 2013 - 4:00pm  |  Updated: September 3, 2013 - 11:05pm

Three people qualified this week to seek a seat on the Grovetown City Council in the November nonpartisan election.

Seats occupied by Lee Briggs and Bruce Stoddard are up for re-election on the Nov. 5 ballot.

Briggs, 39, is a John Deere operations manager. He was appointed Aug. 12 to fill the more than four months remaining of former Councilman Sonny McDowell’s term. He resigned in April after being convicted of federal bribery charges.

Stoddard, who has served 12 years on the council, is no seeking re-election.

Retired Columbia County teacher Sylvia Martin, 59, and hairdresser Vickie Cook, 43, also qualified for the election.

Martin previously was considered to fill McDowell’s seat.

Voters must live inside the city and be registered to vote.

Voters must be registered by Oct. 7 to participate in the Nov. 5 election.
