2019 Local Elections Run Off Results

December 5, 2019

The December 3rd Runoff Elections saw several incumbent Mayors unseated, but REALTOR® Champion candidates faired well.

REALTOR® supported Derek Norton won the open Mayor's seat in Smyrna. It marks the first time in 60 years someone outside of Mayor Max Bacon's family has served as Mayor of the Cobb city. Other REALTOR® backed city council candidates were victorious, Brian Weaver (Johns Creek) and Christine Hall (Roswell). Doraville Mayor Donna Pittman was unsuccessful in retaining her seat. She lost to former Doraville City Council Member Joseph Geierman.

One of the biggest shockers was longtime College Park Mayor Jack Longino being unseated by political newcomer Bianca Motley Broom. Johns Creek Councilman Chris Coughlin survived a tough challenge and first time candidate Erin Elwood will also be joining the Johns Creek council.
