PTC voters give Imker a 4-year term, approve Sunday retail alcohol sales

Incumbent Post 1 Councilman Eric Imker Tuesday easily turned back a challenge from political first-timer Steve Allen to win a four-year term on the Peachtree City Council.

Imker’s tally was 2,039 votes (58 percent) to Allen’s 1,468 (42 percent).

Imker was running for a full term after having won a special election two years ago to fill the unexpired term of then-Councilman Don Haddix, who resigned to run for mayor.

George Dienhart locked up the unopposed Post 2 slot on council.

Voters also overwhelmingly approved the Sunday retail sale of alcoholic beverages 77 percent to 23 percent.

Voter turnout in Peachtree City uncharacteristically lagged the other two cities voting on council positions.

Only 15 percent of Peachtree City’s total of 23,185 cast ballots in this off-year city election. Fayetteville also uncharacteristically had a higher than usual city election turnout at 19 percent. And Tyrone led all comers with a 39 percent turnout.

Opinion

Growing up at 110 Flamingo Street, I learned math many different ways, both in and out of school. When math was just numbers it was easy to understand.
