Thank you, thank you, thank you for your vote of confidence in this year’s election. Together, we achieved a great margin of victory: 66.1% of the vote! For the next two years, I pledge to deliver the high levels of communication, responsiveness, and service as your State Representative that you have come to expect from me.
I’d like to invite you to a THANK YOU victory celebration this coming Tuesday, November 9, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Pub 71 in Brookhaven, which is located at 4058 Peachtree Road. My campaign will provide food and a cash bar will be available.
In other election news, the five-year renewal of DeKalb County Property Tax Assessment Freeze passed with an overwhelming countywide margin of 77.5% to 22.5%. Please click here for my recent article about the assessment freeze. Hopefully, when this measure comes up for another renewal by 2016, we can make it permanent.
If you live in the Murphey Candler, Silver Lake, Oglethorpe, and Historic Brookhaven neighborhoods, along with portions of Brookhaven Heights, Brookhaven Fields, and Ashford Park, your new State Senator will be Fran Millar. He won with 65.4% of the vote.
The following races are headed for post-Thanksgiving runoffs:
- Nancy Jester versus Jim Redovian for the District 1 seat on the DeKalb County Board of Education.
- Justice David Nahmias versus Tammy Lynn Adkins for the Georgia Supreme Court.
- Chris McFadden versus Toni Davis for the open seat on the Georgia Court of Appeals.
- Michael Rothenberg versus Courtney Johnson for the open seat on the Superior Court of DeKalb County.
The runoff election will be held on Tuesday, November 30.
I’ll send you more information and my recommendations regarding the judicial races as the runoff election draws closer. Choosing the most qualified people for these positions is very important. Once elected, judges have a lot of impact and tend to have some staying power.
