Tramell to run unopposed for West Point mayor

It appears West Point Mayor Steve Tramell will run unopposed in November.

Qualification for elected office ended for West Point on Wednesday and Tramell was the only candidate to qualify for the position of West Point mayor, according to Troup County Election Supervisor Andrew Harper.

Five candidates, including all three incumbents, qualified to run for West Point City Council. For council, Gerald Ledbetter, Sandra Thornton and Deedee Williams, all incumbents, qualified, as did Walda “Wicky” Gladden and Kesha Edwards-Coniglio.
Qualifying continues in both Hogansville and LaGrange through Friday.

In LaGrange, incumbents Mark Mitchell (post 1C), LeGree McCamey (post 2B) and Willie Edmondson (post 2C) have qualified for LaGrange City Council.

In Hogansville, Mark Phillips Ayers and Mandy Louise Neese have qualified to run for post three on the Hogansville City Council, according to Harper. The City of Hogansville also posted that Brenda Geter had qualified for the post three seat, although Harper had not received her paperwork as of 6 p.m. Wednesday. Incumbent Fred Higgins announced Monday that he will not run for post three again.

Incumbent George Bailey is the only candidate to qualify for post four so far. Incumbent Thresea Strickland and Toni Lee Striblin have qualified to run for post five on the Hogansville council.
Elections will be held on Nov. 5.
