SNELLVILLE – There will be a run-off election Dec. 3 to determine the winner of the city’s Post 2 council seat after none of the four candidates garnered more than 50 percent of the vote.
In the Post 2 contest, Solange Destang received 567, Brittany Marmol notched 496, Wanda Blow got 90 and Thomas Mwambay tallied 39 votes respectively, meaning Destang and Marmol will square off Dec. 3 to decide the winner of the seat. Marmol’s husband Roger decided not to run for re-election for the seat. The winner of the race would’ve needed to receive 597 votes to avoid the runoff.
Incumbent Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem Dave Emanuel defeated challenger Cortez Riden 989 to 211
Mayor Barbara Bender did not have a challenger in her race and notched 1,093 votes.
