There’ll be no changes to the Milledgeville City Council following Tuesday’s municipal election, but we won’t know the full makeup of the Georgia Military College Board of Trustees until after a November 30th runoff.
 
City Council incumbents Richard Mullins and Steve Chambers won the pair of contested races for Milledgeville City Council. The city’s other four alders and Milledgeville Mayor Mary Parham-Copelan cruised to reelection without opposition.
 
But in a three-candidate race for First District seat on the Georgia Military College Board of Trustees, no one candidate earned a majority of votes.
 
Lataurien K. Lewis and Alan Hale Wicker each received 31 votes. William F. Kennedy trailed the pair with 29 votes.

Now Lewis and Wicker will meet again in a runoff election to be decided November 30th.
 
In all, 841 residents cast ballots in Tuesday’s municipal election. That’s just over 11 percent of Milledgeville’s 7,599  registered voters.
