No candidates for Porterdale Post 3 seat

By Gabriel Khouli/

Mansfield Resident Carol Jones, HOPE of Georgia's Mike Carter, Rep. Doug Holt and Tom Parker from Georgia Transmission Corporation discuss the power lines that are currently drawing ire in Mansfield.

Today is the last day for city candidates to declare for office and a few posts still have no takers.

Porterdale's Council Post 3 opened up when Arline Chapman resigned the seat to make a run for mayor. The council voted last week to hold a special election to fill her seat's remaining two-year term on the same day as the regular municipal election.

The qualifying fee for a Porterdale council seat is $15. Qualifying takes place at city hall, 2400 Main Street, and it ends at 4:30 p.m.

The Council Post 2 seat in Newborn also has had no qualifiers. Post 2 is held by Dennis Fincher, who replaced John Donaldson in June when Donaldson moved out of town.

The qualifying fee for a Newborn council seat is $25. Qualifying takes place at city hall, 4224 Ga. Highway 142, and ends at 4:30 p.m.

Mansfield City Hall was closed on Wednesday, and no one could provide updated qualifying information late Thursday afternoon.

All seats in Covington and Oxford have at least one qualifier; as it stands now all Oxford candidates would run uncontested.
