Mary Parham Copelan is set to become Milledgeville’s first female African American mayor.


Copelan beat incumbent Gary Thrower by a five-vote margin in an election that will be certified today. 


Baldwin County Probate Court Judge and Superintendent in Tuesday’s election Todd Blackwell told WRGC that certification opens a two-day window for Thrower to request a recount in the close mayoral race.
