Georgia’s next governor, a U.S. senator, and three county commission posts are among the ballot questions that Evans County voters will help decide in next Tuesday’s General Election. With several state offices up for grabs, there will be only a few local races on the ballot – none of them contested.
On the local side, three candidates for the Evans County Board of Commissioners are seeking four year terms. Two of them, Shela F. Holland, District 1, and Delmas P. Beasley, District 3, are incumbents and unopposed for re-election. Gary Bell is seeking election to the District 5 post being vacated by Neal Hammack. Bell is also unopposed.
In the race for Governor of Georgia, incumbent Nathan Deal-(R) is opposed by Jason Carter-(D) and Libertarian candidate Andrew Hunt. For Lieutenant Governor, ‘Casey’ Cagle is seeking re-election, while Democrat Connie Stokes hopes to unseat him.
