Fayette primary winners and losers have their say

The July 31 primary ended with clear winners in some races, while others will face runoff elections later this month. A number of the candidates were contacted for their thoughts on their campaigns and the results of the election. The comments of those responding thus far are included below.

Barry Babb had a big showing in the race for Fayette County Sheriff, taking home 63.79 percent of the vote. Babb expressed appreciation to his family and to the voters, reiterating his comments during the campaign that he intends to serve in a hands-on capacity.

"I just want to thank everybody who helped and supported this campaign, especially my wife and family," Babb said. "We are blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive community. I am still overwhelmed by the response of the voters and it has instilled in me an even greater desire to work hard to serve our community. The message I received during these two months of campaigning has been to work hard to ensure our quality of life and to be an available hands-on leader. I am anxious to get started and I look forward to working with Sheriff Hannah to make the transition as smooth as possible. Thank you Fayette County."

Sheriff Wayne Hannah took 36.21 percent of the vote in the primary election. Contacted Wednesday, Hannah acknowledged the people involved in his campaign, adding that he was proud of the way it had been conducted.

“I want to thank everyone for their help in my campaign. I ran a clean campaign and I'm very proud of that. I've enjoyed my 38 years serving Fayette County and during the next five months I will approach each day as I have in the last three and a half years,” Hannah said. “It's up to you to hold the new sheriff accountable for his actions while he is in office. Under my service as sheriff, we have won many awards and we are proud of that. I do have to be concerned for some sheriff’s office employees who we’re hearing might not have a job.” 

Fayette County Board of Education Post 1 winner Barry Marchman took 57.49 percent of the Tuesday vote. A statement on his website thanked the many volunteers for their help during the campaign. Marchman said he would spend the next four years being fiscally accountable and promoting high academic standards.

“I want to thank the army of volunteers from so many different groups of people that worked so tirelessly to get out our message,” Marchman said. “I understand that the volunteers and the voters were supporting an idea more so than a personality and I promise to work hard these next four years to represent those ideas of fiscal responsibility, high academic standards, and common sense conservative values on the Fayette County Board of Education.”

Post 1 Candidate Scott Hollowell received 42.51 percent of the primary vote. In a statement on his Facebook page, Hollowell congratulated Marchman and said he would continue his involvement with the Fayette school system.

“I want to let every know that I called Barry last night and congratulated him on his win and to wish him well going forward. I told him if I could ever be of service, just let me know,” Hollowell said. “It has been a very rewarding experience. I am grateful for the new friendships made and the old friendships that were strengthened. I plan on being at the next School Board meeting August 6. I strongly encourage all parents who care about their schools to be at that meeting. We have to stay involved to keep our schools moving in the right direction.”

Hollowell in his statement also thanked a large number of people whose support he acknowledged and appreciated.

Fayette Board of Education Post 2 winner Mary Kay Bacallao came away with 68.14 percent of the vote. Bacallao will face school board member Terri Smith (D) in the November general election.

In her comments on the primary victory, Bacallao spoke about the experience of running, on the upcoming race in November and service to the school system.

"To God be the glory, great things He has done. I am grateful to God for all the wonderful people I have met while running for the Fayette County School Board. I have been impressed with the wisdom, intelligence, and kindness I have seen throughout this experience. We are truly blessed to live in Fayette County where so many people care deeply about our schools. I have the utmost respect and appreciation for all those who have worked tirelessly on this campaign. I have enjoyed getting to know you. That has been the best part," Bacallao said. "I am so appreciative and humbled by your support. I am looking forward to continuing on in this race as we get ready for November. We have something special here in Fayette County, and I hope to have the opportunity to serve our schools and our community on the Fayette County School Board. Thank you for your support, prayers and encouragement. Together we can make a difference."

Fayette BoE Post 2 candidate Gary Griffin in his comments on the primary election said he grew from having gone through the primary process, adding his congratulations to Bacallao and his thanks to the voters who supported his efforts.

"I was glad to have participated. I enjoyed it and grew from the experience, though I don't know if I would do it again," Griffin said. "I'd like to thank the people who voted for me and I'd like to congratulate my opponent."

Charles Oddo defeated incumbent Robert Horgan for the Post 1 seat on the commission and will be sworn in Jan. 1 because there is no Democratic challenger for the November general election.

Oddo said he really enjoyed the campaign and especially appreciates the effort of his family and other supporters who took part in helping get him elected to office. He specifically credited his wife for being by his side, even during the sign waving on the streetcorner when the heat sailed past the 95-degree mark.

“One thing that impresses me about this county is that a lot of people have passion and rightly or wrongly they were involved in the process and they made their two cents known and that’s the good part about this,” Oddo said. “My manner is a lot more low key ... but I think the passion everybody had was good if we can just redirect it a little more positively in the future.”

Oddo said he hoped to help improve relationships between the commission and also get more citizens involved in government, perhaps by streaming the meetings online so more citizens can provide input.

“One of the thins I really hope to do is get more people involved, and listen to them and get their input because there are a wealth of ideas in this county that seem to be sliding by, it seems like an opportunity missed not talking to these folks and getting them to meetings,” Oddo said. “I know people elect us to get up there and do our job and not be bothered with it. But we need help: we’re just commissioners, that’s all, we’re not mind readers. We’re there to serve the people who elected us so I will be looking for people to get in and determine what the community wants and move forward together.”

Oddo said while it is impossible to make everyone happy, things can be improved by increasing communication and understanding.

“When I make a decision it will be based on what is best for the county and its citizens, and not any individual or group,” Oddo said. “... A lot of this is simply communication and that’s what we’ve got to do. We’ve got to communicate.”

Oddo said he and the other commissioners will have to look at some tough issues ahead.

“I’m not saying we want to changer everything, but I want to talk a look ... and probably the new commissioners will want to take a look or whomever gets elected. We just want to reassess where we are and kind of get our thoughts together and our citizens thoughts and go down the same path together.”

Oddo said he will work on getting up to speed on how the county functions so he can understand the process and if necessary make any improvements.

Oddo also credited opponent Robert Horgan for his service on the commission.

“He put in about seven years and rightly or wrongly, it doesn’t matter how I feel about his votes, he was there and he did what he felt was right and he deserves a lot of credit for what he has done in the community,” Oddo said. “I hope after I leave office I wil be able to say I made a contribution to the community as well.”

Post 1 County Commissioner Robert Horgan lost Oddo. Horgan said he was disappointed in the outcome but he proud of his service in seven years as a county commissioner.

"I would say the last seven years I think I have been very productive as a commissioner and have accomplished a lot of things," Horgan said. "I will work as hard as I can to keep the two circus clowns, Randy (Ognio) and (David) Barlow from being elected. I really think I had a good run. I think with my help through the Fayetteville Main Street coordination we were able to do improvements at the courthouse and I was instrumental with the Fayetteville mental health facility and the WIC office here in the county, resolving the sheriff's lawsuit agreement and fights back when (Randall) Johnson was sheriff, and changing how we have an in-house attorney and our policies and everything have been gone through and updated."

Horgan also said while it may have cost him the election, he thinks the West Fayetteville Bypass is a huge accomplishment.

"I think in the long run those were hard decisions and I stuck by my guns on that, and I think it will be beneficial to Fayette County in the long run," Horgan said. "I have been through three different boards with Greg Dunn, Jack Smith and Herb Frady and I was told in the very beginning as commissioner your should leave things better than it was when you got here and I certainly think I have done that. I have matured a lot and grown up a lot and I'm not leaving Fayette County."

Horgan said that he thinks if Ognio and Barlow were to be elected to the commission "it would be a detriment to this county ... neither one of them said anytihg about the issues at all, it's all about bad things. It's about getting things done. It's easy to point fingers."

Post 2 candidate David Barlow will face Sheila Huddleston in a runoff election and said he was really pleased he came in first, but was disappointed he didn't win a majority.

"I was also surprised that Jack Smith got as few votes as he did and that Ms. Huddleston got the amount of votes that she did,:" Barlow said. "I believe that we are well prepared to move forward on the points that I have already talked about: transparency and accountability. We need to have fiscal responsibility, not just talk about it, but we actually need to sit down and address it. Today you can refer to some things that came out, that we are going to be increasing the fire fund and if commissioner Brown is accurate, I haven't had a chance to research it, and we have been kicking the can down the road five yeras you have to ask the question why did that not meet the definition of fiscal accountablity. I understand we don't want to be a drain on the cities that have their own fire department but that is something that needs to be addressed."

Huddleston in her comments said she would not let the citizens down if they elect her in the runoff election. Huddleston said she represents a perspective that includes old-school values combined with new visions and ideas.

"I am humbled and honored by the vote of confidence I received Tuesday night. With your vote and support I am now in the Aug. 21 runoff for the Post 2 seat on the Fayette County Board of Commissioners and I can assure you I will not let you down. I will live up to the confidence you have shown in me. I am committed to accountability, fiscal responsibility and open government," Huddleston said. "I want to bring new visions and new ideas to Fayette County, but I am committed to old-school values. I will work to insure that we preserve the quality of life we all hold so dear in this county that we call home. Fayette County is a special place, and we need to keep it that way. That is my commitment to you."

Post 3 candidate Randy Ognio will face incumbent Post 3 commissioner Lee Hearn in the runoff election Aug. 21.

"I've got to thank all my supporters out there," Ognio said. "I know a lot of them did a lot of hard work for me and a lot of them gave financial support, so I've got to thank them all. And we've got to let them know we have two to three more weeks to go and I won't stop 'til we're finished."

Ognio said he would continue to stick to the issues even though bloggers have started with personal attacks.

"Personally I believe that if we stick with the issues, we'll win," Ognio said. "Just please get out and vote August 21."

Hearn, who will face Ognio in the runoff election, said he looked forward to the challenge of the next three weeks.

"I would really love the opportunity to have an open debate with Mr. Ognio sponsored by the chamber or the Rotary Club," Hearn said. "I would make myself available anytime they can work that out to talk about the issues. I look forward to a positive issues-based informative campaign. ... I don't indulge in attack-oriented politiics and I haven't in the past and I won't in the future."

It's pretty clear. What else can you say?

Randy Ognio and David Barlow are the standout choices.

I'm amazed Robert Horgan actually thought he was going to be reelected. He and that Lee Hearn have done everything Josh Bloom said.

It'll be nice to have people who care in office come 2013.

Josh Bloom's picture

My 2 cents.

I appreciate the ideas and vision that Mr. Barlow brings to the table and will vote in favor of him.

I have tried to figure out who Sheila Huddleston is? Let me tell you that that is no small feat. Other than Huddleston rd, Pond, and elementry school I don't know who you are or exactly what you believe in. Ms. Huddleston has advertisement up on The Citizen which leads to her website. There is no substance on her views and the fact that I have not seen her at county commision meetings I have got to assume she is simply running on the Huddleston name.

Ms. Huddleston only talks of her "old school" values but mixes in her "new visions or ideas"...whatever that means?

I am very cofused with Ms. Huddleston and will vote for David Barlow a familiar face at county commissioner meetings and who at least I know he knows what the heck is going on.

As for Ms. Huddleston I doubt she even reads these forums so I would not expect a reply back.

Josh

I see nowhere that Ms. Huddlston is related to any of the local Huddlestons. Her bio says she grew up in Alabama and moved here in 1991.

Unless she was married to a local Huddleston (she says she is now a single mom), I haven't seen anything showing otherwise. Please correct me if anyone knows this not to be the case.

Oops! Updated/posted twice.

Redacted copy of complaint electronically filed with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission 8/5/12.

Sheila Huddleston, a Peachtree City attorney admitted to the Georgia Bar in 2010, is in a run-off election to be held on 8/21/12 for Post 2 of the Fayetteville Board of Commissioners.

According to information contained on your campaign commission website, she has failed to file campaign finance reports for the calendar year 2011 which was due 6/14/12, and a report due 6/30/12. She has been fined twice for this omission - your invoice dated August 2, 2012.

Because of her failure to file campaign reports, the citizens of Fayette County have been denied their right to determine who is supporting her candidacy and other important information. Furthermore, there is virtually no information available about her - see her campaign website http://electsheilahuddleston.com/contact.html

Her place of employment information is: Huddleston Law Group LLC, P.O. Box 2101, Peachtree City, Ga. 30269.

The run-off election date is fast approaching and we may not be able to discover anything about her candidacy because she has failed to file required reports in accordance with Georgia statutes.

On behalf of the citizens of Fayette County, I urge you to contact her and demand that she immediately comply with the disclosure laws.

I have completed your Complaint Form and will have it notarized and sent to you by regular mail on Monday August 6, 2012.

Respectfully,

Jim Richter

On another subject, I find it very interesting that Sheila Huddleston, Scott Hollowell and Susan Stopford joined the Fayette County Republican Party ON THE SAME DAY, 6/20/12. Now, that is not just a coincidence in my opinion.

Neither I nor anyone else I know, remembers ever seeing any of these three individuals at a GOP function, county commissioner meeting or budget session before 6/20/12. Did they all have an epiphany experience on the same day?

NUK_1's picture

As a registered Libertarian, I sure don't put a ton of weight in who is in the local Republican Party or not, especially when it's run by Lane Watts. Are you kidding me? You have someone as totally dedicated as they come and has proven it for years and years to the RP in Jean Studdard and your chair is Lane Frickin' Watts. Again, are you kidding me?

Maybe you ought to clean up your local Repub party before you wonder why anyone is joining or not. Since your party and the Dems do everything possible to restrict ballot access to anyone not a "R" or a "D," why is it somehow strange that candidates end up having to register as one or the other for elections?

Robert W. Morgan's picture

on the religious right. Everything in the Republican Party is a compromise with the Dems and outright subserviency to the whackos on the right who have a religious litmus test for everything. If we dumped our whackos, the whackos on the far left would really look out of step. As it is now they just point at each other and cancel themselves out.

Do you think Chickengate would have had legs if the Republicans had purged themselves of vehement opposition to gay marriage and abortion and whatever else old white guys care about controlling when it comes to personal behavior?

I suspect you couldn't wait for the Republicans to get with the program and instead went Libertarian.

Live free or die!

Not sure what you are ranting about, but I suppose SB put you upnto it.

As one who files these forms, with each notfication of filing due dates comes a letter. One portion, using July as an example, states:

<cite><strong>A filer whose CCDR is filed after the end of the grace period has expired is in violation of the law and subject to late filing fees.
A June 30, 2012 CCDR is late if it is filed after July 9, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. and a $125.00 automatic late filing fee is imposed upon the filer for each report that is filed late.
If the CCDR has still not been filed by July 15, 2012, an additional $250.00 late filing fee is imposed upon the filer for each report that is filed late.
Failure to file the CCDR by August 14, 2012, which is the 45th day after the due date of the CCDR, will cause an additional $1,000.00 late filing fee to be imposed for each report that is filed late.</cite></strong>

This is a pretty serious charge when concerning one who wants to oversee legal and financial matters.

I checked the Ethics site and indeed it says she has made no filing.

For me, this does not add well to the fact I have no idea how she would vote on specific issues.

As well there are claims out there she was recruited by such as Peter Pfiefer to run.

Yes, I am an elected official, but I am also a voter. So I want answers.

Ognio and Barlow have answered my questions and I like the answers.

As for anyone being in Steve Brown's pocket, get over it. It is false and not happening.

Mike King's picture

"Ognio and Barlow have answered my questions and I like the answers."... This certainly stands to reason, since all that we know of your misappropriations thus far is ten grand and Barlow with two bankruptcies. Kind makes you two peas in a pod, so to speak.

Don Haddix's picture

Misappropriation of funds is a criminal offense. File charges.

Oh, that is right, it wasn't a misappropriation, so you cannot.

And bankruptcies over 20 years ago. Really?

Want to divulge any problem spots in your past? After all, if decades ago counts, lay them out there.

No, you prefer to throw stones at others and act as if your life has been pristine.

Your retired. Run for office again and see how the voters feel about your history over the last few years, not decades.

Finally, I guess failure to file CCDR's is okay with you.

Hmmm. Didn't you miss filing one?

I've paid my way. Simply stated, you didn't. Actually, you went to the public trough, but since you've likely depended on another's income for a goodly portion of your adult life, it was a natural for you.

Bankruptcies eight years apart I do have an issue with. You may not, but then again I'll refer you back to the public trough. I do have a checkered past, but I took responsibility for my personal shortcomings something you can't say.

Should you have the cajones to run for reelection, I might just oppose you. I would prefer either of the two ladies or Mr Imker to have first dibs against your sorry ass. That said, want to declare now?

BTW, I did pay a $25 fine, for some reason or another. Ask Betsy, she might give you a better insight.

Robert W. Morgan's picture

Well now buckeroo, the city council did exactly that. They were prosecutor, judge and jury and they found you guilty and docked your pay so the $10,000 you misdirected from the city treasury gets paid back. Now if they were wrong and you think you deserve the money back - you file charges. Dope.

Mike King for Mayor!

Now that would be fun to watch. Why have a mayor when you can have a king! And Mike does know how to act like a king. Too funny.

Are you implying you actually passed English 101 before dropping out of college?

I got my copy of The Citizen today, and on the front page the headlines claim that ethic charges have been filed against Don Haddix.

Mayor Haddix, on August 5 you wrote the above post and literally taunted Mike King to file charges. Sure enough charges were filed but by someone else.

Did you speak too soon and remind citizens that the deadline was coming up?

These blogs are very powerful, I suppose that's why people read them.

Maybe should have continued to lay low longer (past the filing deadline) instead of posting attacks on people over the past week or so?

<strong>Webmaster clarifies: This comment is a satire. This is not an actual letter from "David" to the mayor.</strong>

Dear Don,
Thanks for supporting me in my campaign to become a Fayette County Commissioner. Thanks and now stop. Please. Every time you write something it automatically helps my opponent. I know you mean well and you are an expert on all things ethical, but please - stop. Now. This race is far too close to lose votes like that. Plus there is backlash from English teachers for things like this:

"For me, this does not add well to the fact I have no idea how she would vote on specific issues."

What's that even mean? You sure don't know how I'm going to vote on specific issues either. I have to wait and see which way the wind is blowing and how I can best serve the new Chairperson, who I plan to worship. I mean he did put $150 in my collection plate and I proudly reported it - on time!

I am praying to our one and only God that you will help me by stopping to help me. If you stop I will treat you to a whole platter of Christian Chicken sandwiches. I will bring them by your house after dark; I'll be wearing a paper bag with eye slits.

Glory be to God.
Your friend,
David

Live free or die!

Classic.

Of course it is only Monday, but "delivering Christian Chicken wearing a paper bag mask"

As funny as that letter seems, I'll bet Mr. Barlow actually does have enough sense to realize he doesn't need friends like that. Things are tough enough for him anyway.

mudcat's picture

Wonder which of our resident geniuses took it to be a real letter. I'm betting on the mayor. He probably called Cal and asked why he didn't get a copy in the mail.

rolling stone's picture

he knows his audience well. Good job Cal.

Robert W. Morgan's picture

and it is a beauty - an ethics charge filed by a citizen. Of course his first reaction will be to have the city attorney defend him, but then when the citizen expands his complaint to include the city attorney, that option will disappear. Looks like he's getting what he asked for.

I was intrigued by the accusation that Ms. Huddleston has been fined by the State Elections people for not filing reports. I was further intrigued that she waited, after 20 years, to join the Republican Party a month before the election. And, I was interested in the comment that her website was shallow.

I found something else interesting on her website. She says she volunteers for the Clothes Less Travelled, "which is run by Holy Trinity Catholic Church" which she says is her church. I am a member of both as well. But I knew that Holy Trinity is just ONE of many community groups that support this fine organization. It leads me to believe that Ms. Huddleston's volunteer commitment equals her level of commitment to the Republican Party.

I think I'll vote for Mr. Barlow.

Robert W. Morgan's picture

If so that was really tacky. I don't really like Horgan, but the mug shot thing is very dirty politics. And now digging into Huddleston's filings is like going through somebody's trash - something David Axelrod would do (and has done). Stay out of the gutter, Mr. Richter. This stuff is silly and is not going to help the bible thumper Barlow get elected from this county. Attacking Sheila Huddleston is not what we are about. Fayette County voters turn out in droves when somebody like you attacks a woman candidate like she is.

Your whole Barlow/Brown support really bothers me and the silly tactics to advance your agenda is not what I will vote for. Sorry to end the sentence with a preposition like that. Sometimes the pressure of political thought is overwhelming and I can't be brought to my senses quickly enough to avoid things like that , don't you know.

Count me in as a Huddleston supporter and that is who I will vote for. Meaning later in August when the month is almost over with.

Live free or die!

americanpatriots's picture

I haven't even seen the mug shot you are referring to. You just crossed the line with your stupid idiotic comment but that is nothing new for you.

Hearn and Huddleston supporters have apparently resorted to desperate measures to avoid their candidate’s inevitable defeat.

Barlow’s campaign signs are disappearing all over the county and Huddleston and Hearn signs have been put up in place of his signs.

Question for Hearn and Huddleston - are your supporters so desperate for you to win that they are willing to get caught and be prosecuted?

Where is their sense of fair play and decency? The citizens of Fayette County deserve better than this despicable behavior.

Jim Richter

I asked Mr. Hearn about the NAACP forum he missed since I had seen him at the others. He said he wasn’t invited and didn’t know about it until several days afterward. Then, he told me what happened one night about a month ago at his house. Seems somebody stole the campaign signs at the end of his driveway and smashed his neighbor’s mailbox (which he said is close to his driveway). The next day, the postal clerk returned a piece of mail that had been stolen from his mailbox and found on the ground by the mail carrier a mile down the road. It was opened with nothing inside. Return address? The Fayette Chapter of the NAACP! His invitation to the forum? Probably. Makes you wonder who’s going through mailboxes, doesn't it!

As far as Hearn or his team stealing signs? Not a chance. It is my understanding that Mr. Hearn initiated a discussion with Mr. Ognio prior to the campaign about sign vandalism and Mr. Hearn and Mr. Ognio both agreed not to partake in such.

By the way, Hearn’s team retrieved 10 of his signs from the bin at the Road Department yesterday and I’ll be there’s lots of others there too.

signs have been swapped/stolen? What location(s)?

ginga1414's picture

At first light today, it seemed that the disappearing sign problems were most prevalent in the Fayetteville area.

However, I have had word that it has happened in other areas throughout the county.

Yesterday, the Barlow and Ognio signs on my property disappeared but some were returned last evening.

Voted for the despised West Fayetteville Bypass that citizens railed against for over three years. This project only benefited the real estate developers of Fayette County.

Voted to change priorities of projects and stopped funding for the East Fayetteville Bypass thereby wasting $600,000 that had already been spent.

Voted to change the employee Defined Contribution Plan to a Defined Benefit Plan which has the potential of bankrupting the county in the future.

Voted for several “no-bid contracts.”

Voted for items that were not on the published meeting agenda.

Voted for the Employee Early Retirement Plan that requires an “upfront payment” of almost $3 million dollars to be paid from the diminishing general fund.

Lee Hearn recommended and voted with his pals Frady and Horgan to pave a very short gravel road on Snead at a cost of almost $100,000 that will only be used by the residents of two properties. And, surprise, surprise, the land developer of those lots can now sell more lots that had very little value until OUR MONEY was used for this project.

This should cause everyone to ask why did this waste of OUR MONEY occur? Is this just another example, like the West Fayetteville Bypass, of taxpayer money being used to help a land developer.

The end of the unbelievably bad decisions made by Frady, Hearn, and Horgan can’t come fast enough for me and anyone else that has taken the time to dig into what has been going on for years under the leadership of these three!

Sheila Huddleston is NOT RELATED to the long-time Huddleston family that is so well known in Fayette County

Voters will be misled into thinking she is a part of the Fayette County Huddleston family, which SHE IS NOT!
