2019 Local Elections Recap

November 7, 2019

On a very quiet election night, the 2019 local general elections came and went with a very low turnout. The Nov. 5th election provided few surprises, but our REALTOR® Champions won over 80% of their races.

Mayor John Ernst, Brookhaven, led the pack of incumbents winning another four years in office. Ernst easily defeated his opponent with almost 70% of the vote. He is joined by other ARPAC supported incumbents for City Council, Linley Jones (Brookhaven), Myron Cook and Stephanie Gordon (East Point), James Whitemore (Fairburn), Catherine Rowell (South Fulton) and Brian Jones (Union City).

ARPAC also helped a couple of newcomers win their city council elections led by Madeline Simmons (Brookhaven), Stacey Harris (Dunwoody), Paul Moore (Milton) and Travis Lindley (Smyrna).

Heading to a December 3rd run-off election will be Mayor Donna Pittman (Doraville), Derek Norton (Smyrna) and Christine Hall (Roswell).
