SNELLVILLE – Solange Destang is the city’s newest council member after she defeated Brittany Marmol in Tuesday’s Run-Off Election.
Destang, a South Gwinnett High School teacher, won the contest 557 - 401.
Destang will be sworn into office at the Dec. 9 council meeting.
The Run-Off Election was needed after neither of the four candidates who ran for the post Nov. 5 garnered more than 50 percent of the vote. Then, Destang received 567 votes, Marmol got 496 votes. Wanda Blow and Thomas Mwambay tallied 90 and 39 votes respectively.
Destang replaces Marmol’s husband Roger who decided not to run for re-election for the seat.
