2 challengers step up in F’ville
At least two of the incumbents on the Fayetteville City Council will face a challenger in the November election. Qualifying for the three seats up for election will be held Aug. 26-28.
The terms of Post 3 Councilman Walt White, Post 4 Councilman Larry Dell and Post 5 Councilman Paul Oddo will expire at the end of the year.
Of the three incumbents, only Oddo has announced that he will run for re-election.
To date there is one challenger for White’s Post 3 seat in 53-year-old aviation safety inspector Scott Stacy, who previously announced that he will challenge White in November.
Dell’s Post 4 seat will also see a challenger from Chattahoochee Hills Administrator Jim Williams, 75, who announced his intention to run last weekend. Prior to the past two years in Chattahoochee Hills, Williams served as the Fairburn City Administrator for eight years and worked in Peachtree City government for 22 years, 10 of which was as director of development.
