County Runoff Results
Tuesday, 21 August 2012

August 21--  The race to succeed District Three Commissioner Skeeter Toole on the Toombs County Commission came down to 20 votes in Tuesday's runoff election.

Outgoing county school board member Darriel Nobles defeated Emory Mixon 322 to 302.

"I'm real humble that the people of the Third District put enough confidence in me to lead them for the next four years.  I can assure them that I will represent alll of them to the best of my ability and I guarantee them that I will be a visible county commissioner," Nobles said.

In Montgomery County, the Republican nominee for county sheriff is Ladson O'Connor who defeated Danny Taylor by 36 votes, 609 to 573.  O'Connor will face Mount Vernon Police Chief Calvin Burns in the November general election.

The District Two County Commission seat in Montgomery County goes to Tim Williamson.  He beat Susan Beard by 19 votes, 171 to 152 and will succeed Franklin Brantley on the commission.

In the race for Post One seat in the Mount Vernon District for the county school board, Pete Ward won by 49 votes over Gil McDaniel, 360 to 311.  He will take the place of Jackson Posey on the school board.

In the Republican runoff for the 12th Congressional seat, voters in Montgomery County went for State Representative and Grovetown farmer Lee Anderson by a wide margin while Toombs County narrowly chose Augusta building contractor Rick Allen.

Anderson beat Allen in Montgomery County by 176 votes while Allen squeezed by Anderson in Toombs County by only 30 votes.

District-wide Anderson beat Allen by just 153 votes, less than one percent, and Allen is entitled to a recount.  If the count stands, Anderson will face Democrat Congressman John Barrow in November.
