Elections come and elections go, but the work of the candidates campaign committee seems to go on forever.
July 31st was one such day. The voters came out in about a 30 percent showing and they selected winners and almost winners.
The race for Superior Court Clerk is in a runnoff, as is the State Court Judges position, District 41 has yet to be decided but TSPLOST was soundly defeated and should have sent a message to the legislature.
The Chairman's race and a commissioner's race are yet to be decided so we all have to go back this week (early vote) and next Tuesday to put the nails in the coffin.
Next Wednesday, we will know if Bill Byrne returns to his seat as Chairman or not. We will see if Woody Thompson can hold onto his seat as 4th district commissioner and we'll see if Larry Burke can muster the voters back out and win in the runoff. Then the 41st house seat will be decided between two democratic folk who will have to keep working at least until November 6th.
Is there no end to this madhouse of politics?
If you have not voted for the runoff, please go back on Tuesday and get your choice of candidate elected, probably won't be very crowded so you can get in, vote, get your little sticker and be on your way.
At least a lot of decisions will be made by voters on Tuesday.
