Ah, local politics. There’s never a dull moment.

The City of Grayson announced today that qualifying for Grayson’s upcoming elections ended Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 PM, and Mayor Allison Wilkerson will return for a second term as Grayson’s leader. The Mayor, along with Council Members Linda Jenkins and Trenton Arnold, turned in the necessary paperwork to qualify as candidates.

Because there were no other candidates in the running, Wilkerson, Arnold and Jenkins will continue in their positions uninterrupted. The City will send certified letters to state and county officials informing them that there will be no elections due to the lack of opposition.

Meanwhile, Snellville will prepare for what many expect to be an interesting election season. Veteran City Council member and Mayor Pro-tem Tom Witts made his candidacy official this week. Witts will run against Mayor Kelly Kautz, who also announced her bid for re-election.

November will be here before you know it…
