A-CC, state Senate candidates kick off campaigns

Two more candidates announce plans to campaign for seats on the Athens-Clarke County Commission: activist Jesse Houle says he is running for the District 6 seat that is now held by Jerry NeSmith; Athens attorney Kamau Hull says he will launch his campaign for the District 8 seat with a rally on Saturday. Hull is running in District 8, the Commission post that is being vacated with the retirement of Andy Herod. Andra Farnham and Carol Myers are also candidates in District 8.

There are now three announced candidates, all of them Republicans, in the race to replace Stephens County state Senator John Wilkinson, who is running to replace Hall County Congressman Doug Collins, who leaves the US House to run for US Senate: Jackson County native Andy Garrison joins Habersham County Commission Chair Stacy Hall and Cornelia attorney Bo Hatchett in the Senate District 50 campaign.
