UPDATED 4:40 P.M. FRIDAY, SEPT. 16 — The qualifying period has officially ended. The following candidates have qualified for Peachtree City’s Special Municipal Election on November 8, 2022, for City Council Post 3 (listed in alphabetical order by last name):

Phil Crane

Mark D. Gelhardt, Sr.

Kenneth Hamner

Clint Holland

Kevin Madden

===================================

EARLIER STORY: The following persons have qualified to run for the non-partisan open Post 3 in the Nov. 8 Peachtree City Council Special Election as of noon, Thursday, Sept. 15:

• Clinton (Clint) Russell Holland Jr., Loring Lane, Peachtree City. He lists his party affiliation as Republican.

• Mark D. Gelhardt, Sr., Corrigan Trace, Peachtree City. The optional box for party affiliation is left blank.

• Philip (Phil) James Crane, Perthshire Drive, Peachtree City. He lists his party affiliation as Republican.

Others who have filed paperwork for accepting campaign contributions are as follows:

• Kevin B. Madden, Highgreen Ridge, Peachtree City. He listed his party affiliation as non-partisan. Madden ran for reelection last fall to this post but lost to Gretchen Caola, who has moved out of town, thus disqualifying her for continuing as a council member.

• Kenneth Tracy Hamner, Sedgewick Court, Peachtree City. He listed his party affiliation as non-partisan.

One other person — Christopher Parker — filled out the fundraising paperwork but has informed City Hall that he is withdrawing his candidacy.

So at this stage — with the deadline for qualifying 4:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16 — there are three official candidates — Holland, Gelhardt and Crane — with two others — Madden and Hamner — yet to sign on the dotted line.

  1. Why aren’t the pundits like Suzanne Brown, Trey Hoffman, and Steve Brown running for City Council? They freely offer their solutions to the many problems facing Peachtree City? They either need to step up, be part of the solution or STFU.
