Renee McDowell earned a seat on the Grovetown City Council in her first ever campaign, which ended in Tuesday’s election.
She was calm all day, going about her normal business, even having dinner with her husband as results were coming in.
But the results, not the waiting, put McDowell a little on edge.
“Now that (campaigning) part is over, we can get to the part that I’m really excited about,” McDowell
said. “Now, I’m nervous.”
McDowell garnered 915, 49.8 percent of the votes defeating opposing candidates Eric Blair and David Payne Jr.
