Two more people qualified in Troy on Friday to run in the city’s August municipal elections.
Todd Kreis wants to step into the District 3 council seat and incumbent Wanda Moultry hopes to remain the District 5 councilperson.
The two qualified behind seven others in Troy and nine others in Brundidge who visited their respective city halls on earlier this week.
Current District 3 Councilman Jason Reeves qualified as a mayoral candidate in Troy; incumbent Charlie Dunn qualified in District 1, so did Shelby Tuck; Greg Meeks is hoping to step into the District 2 council seat as his father departs his duties there; Marcus Paramore qualified for District 3; incumbent Johnny Witherington hopes to be re-elected to the District 4 council spot; and Dejerilyn Henderson wants to represent District 5.
In Brundidge, two people qualified for both the race for mayor and District 3 councilperson on Tuesday.
Incumbent Mayor Jimmy Ramage and Michael Foster both qualified in hopes of representing Brundidge as mayor for the next four years; incumbent Lawrence Bowdin would like to continue on as the District 1 councilmember; Arthur Griffin, incumbent councilmember for District 2, qualified; Margaret Ross, Anthony Foster and Terry Casey would like to claim the District 3 spot on the city council; incumbent Cynthia Pearson hopes to continue on as the representative for District 4; and Steven Coleman, incumbent, is running again for District 5.
