Enoch joins District 3 Augusta Commission race

The race to replace term-limited Mayor Pro Tem Joe Bowles as District 3 commissioner gained a second contender Wednesday with Augusta attorney Ed Enoch filing a notice with the state ethics office.

Enoch, who represents the Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority, joins Mary Fair Davis in seeking the District 3 post.

Davis, who served as Mayor Deke Copenhaver’s campaign chairwoman in 2006 and whose campaign chairman is Augusta businessman Clay Boardman, was expected to make her formal announcement at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at Enterprise Mill.

Enoch, who chairs the campaign of Augusta Sen. Hardie Davis, said in an e-mail his official announcement will come later.

Five seats on the Augusta commission come open this year.
