Election date set to fill open House seat

 

A special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the resignation of Ben Harbin will be set for Nov. 3., Gov. Nathan Deal’s spokewoman Jen Talaber said Wednesday.

Talaber said Deal will issue a writ calling for the special election in September, 60 days prior to the election date.

The governor’s statement clarifies a cloudy election picture for Columbia County officials and potential candidates who have been waiting for the special election date to be selected since Harbin abruptly announced he would be leaving office to take a job with a lobbying firm on June 29.

Harbin’s resignation, which became effective July 7, set in motion a series of political maneuvers by hopefuls looking to fill the county’s first open House seat in 20 years.

Among those to announce for the seat is Mack Taylor, a lawyer who had recently been elected to fill the Columbia County Commission District 3 seat. On July 1, Taylor announced he would resign after seven months in office to pursue the District 122 seat. His resignation from the commission became effective Tuesday, triggering the need for another special election to fill that opening.

Four candidates, all Republicans, have announced intentions to seek the state House seat. They are Taylor, Pat Goodwin, Jodi Lott and Joe Mullins. Five others are planning to run for the District 3 seat: Jim Bartley, Greg Grzybowski, Gary Richardson, Frank Spears and Russell Wilder.

The prospect of two special elections with undetermined dates had county officials scratching their heads and scrutinizing state election law for a definitive answer on when the elections could occur.

From an administrative and cost standpoint, Columbia County Elections Director Nancy Gay said she and others were hopeful it would be possible to have both elections on the same date, but the laws regulating such events left much to interpretation.

Gay said the governor’s announcement settles the major issue, which was out of local control.

It’s likely now that the county will also set the District 3 special election for Nov. 3, but that process hasn’t started yet. Gay said the county commission must vote on a resolution, which will be given to the Board of Elections, which in turn will set the date.

“I don’t know just yet, because I haven’t been given anything from the county commission to give to the (Board of Elections),” she said.

Commission Chairman Ron Cross said he too was happy with the governor’s decision.

“That’s the best date, I don’t think there is any question,” he said.

Cross said he expects the commission would take up the issue of an election resolution at the next regular meeting on Aug. 4.

Gay said the next scheduled Board of Elections meeting is Aug. 18.

A Nov. 3 election date would allow time for qualifying to be set in late August for the commission race and in September for the House race, she said. In addition to those races, the cities of Grovetown and Harlem will be conducting municipal elections on Nov. 3.

Having all those elections on the same day would be more efficient and would also yield a better voter turnout overall, Gay said.

Police Blotter, July 26, 2015

The following accounts were taken from Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident reports:

Evans woman followed home

An Evans woman called authorities Monday after she said a stranger followed her home from work.

The woman said she was driving home from work at Augusta Mall at about 4:30 p.m. and she noticed a man following her car. She said the stranger was a bald white man about 40 years old driving a red jeep. The stranger turned onto every street the woman did. She said she didn’t use her blinker and the stranger would abruptly turn to follow her. The woman said the stranger was taking photos of her vehicle. She was scared, so she ran the four-way stop sign on Blue Ridge Drive and the stranger stopped and didn’t follow her any longer.

Man confronts mailbox vandal

A Grovetown man said Tuesday that he confronted a woman who damaged his mailbox.

The 66-year-old man said that someone hit his vehicle at about 11 p.m. on July 2. He heard a loud vehicle and a loud noise outside his home and immediately thought his mailbox was hit.

The man said he went outside with a flashlight and saw a GMC truck with new bright red paint down the road turning around headed back toward his house.

He turned off the flashlight and hid. The driver got out of the truck and he shined his flashlight in the driver’s face. The driver, who was described as a young white man, quickly drove away.

Women report harassing calls

Two Evans women told deputies early last week that they were receiving harassing phone calls.

One of the women said she got a call at about 9:45 p.m. on Monday from a man who said he worked for the Georgia Department of Driver Services. He asked the woman how she ever got a driver’s license. The woman hung up and told deputies she doesn’t know who called or why. She tried to call the number back, but it was disconnected.

A 73-year-old woman said Tuesday that someone called her home
12 times between 7:30
and 7:45 p.m. from a number with an 855 area code. The caller, who she said sounded like a man with a foreign accent, represented himself as an employee of a tech support company.

The woman told the caller she’s not interested and asked him not to call back. The caller responded by saying, “Oh, I’m going to keep calling.”
