It's official! As predicted here on Aug. 22, Randy Bullock is now the GOP's Third Ward candidate for the Nov. 4 general election and Bill Michelson is running for the Second & Third Ward at-large seat.
The word just came from the County Clerk's office that the proper paperwork has been filed. Last week, the GOP filings to replace primary winners had Michelson running in the Third Ward, where he doesn't even live, and had Bullock running for the same seat from which he withdrew.
As of this writing the change is not yet reflected on the candidates' list for the general election in case you look it up, but I'm sure that will follow.
So now the City Council candidate lineup includes Democrat Diane Toliver running unopposed for a four-year term in the First Ward, incumbent Councilwoman Rebecca Williams running for re-election in the Second & Third Wards at-large on the Democratic line and now opposed by Republican Bill Michelson, and Democratic appointee Gloria Taylor on the line for the unexpired Third Ward term versus Republican Randy Bullock.
The last day to register to vote in the general election is Tuesday, Oct. 14.
