Logsdon becomes first candidate to qualify

Steve Brown will face at least two challengers for his Post 3 seat on the county commission in the May primary.

Former Peachtree City mayors Harold Logsdon and Don Haddix have announced they would also seek election to the seat currently held by Brown, who was re-elected as chairman by his fellow commissioners earlier this year.

Logsdon, Haddix and Brown have already qualified for office to run as Republicans as of 4:30 p.m. The local Democratic Party has not qualified any candidates as of 4:30 p.m. but expects to do so this evening and tomorrow morning.

Also up for grabs in the May primary and November general election is the Post 5 seat on the county commission currently held by Allen McCarty, who has said he will seek re-election.

Voters will also fill two seats on the Fayette County Board of Education. The Post 4 seat is currently held by Bob Todd, who has said he will not run for office again, and the Post 5 seat is currently held by Leonard Presberg, who has said he will run for re-election.

Among Fayette’s current state representatives, Democrats Virgil Fludd (Dist. 64) and Ronnie Mabra (Dist. 63) qualified for office as of Monday, along with Republicans Matt Ramsey (Dist. 72) and John Yates (Dist. 73).

Fayette’s Dist. 16 State Senate seat currently held by Ronnie Chance of Tyrone is up for grabs as Chance has said he will not seek re-election. As of midday Monday, insurance agent M.H. “Marty” Harbin was the only candidate to have qualified for that seat, though three others have announced they too will seek election including Fayetteville attorney David Studdard.
