Candidate Torie Stewart has withdrawn her candidacy for the first district seat on the Milledgeville City Council.


Stewart’s withdrawal came a day before a hearing to determine her eligibility to represent a portion of West Milledgeville.


In a notice dated August 26, Milledgeville City Election Superintendent Bo Danuser notified Stewart that her North Jackson Street residence is not located within the first district, and, therefore, she does not meet Georgia’s residency requirements to be a candidate for that Council seat. 


With Stewert out of the race, incumbent Collinda Lee will run uncontested for a fourth term on the Milledgeville City Council.
