August 11 is the runoff
for several DeKalb County elections. I will be voting as a House District 82 citizen in the following contests:
Superior Court Judge Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit -
Yolanda C. Parker-Smith v. Melinda "Mindy" Pillow
DeKalb County Commissioner Super District 6 -
Maryam Ahmad v.Ted Terry
Incumbent DeKalb County Sheriff (for completion of her appointed term) - I'll vote for incumbent Melody Maddox, who won the election for Sheriff for next term.
If you do not live in House District 82, there are other DeKalb County races for your consideration.
Outside DeKalb, there are important Congressional races in runoffs.
I am a strong supporter for Carolyn Bordeaux for U.S. House District 7, who barely avoided a runoff to proceed to the November election against Republican Rich McCormick, who also narrowly avoided a runoff. So you'll be hearing more about that race to flip the 7th as November approaches.
