A pair of heated local run-offs came to a close this Tuesday with challenger Steve Shaw winning the District 2 seat of the Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners over incumbent Tim Bowden by a vote of 1,697 to 1,257.

The race for the magistrate judge position was decided by 281 votes as Randy Pruitt took the seat over Joy Edelberg by a count of 1,749 votes to 1,468.

In the contest for the 9th congressional district seat of Georgia, Doug Collins carried the county by edging out Martha Zoller by a total of 1,515 votes to 1,471. He also clinched a victory across the district.

These results won't be deemed official until military ballots are counted later this week.

well at least Tim is out, one more incumbent gone, hopefully Shaw will not be for spending tax dollars and vote to lower the budget and to set to try and stop all the tax breaks for banks and undeveloped properties.
