Sims back on ballot for house race

June 3, 2004

Albany- An attempt to keep an Albany state house candidate off the ballot failed.

Freddie Powell Sims is running for the house district 151 seat. Incumbent Lawrence Roberts filed a complaint saying she doesn't live in the district.

Thursday night, Sims said she was notified she will remain on the ballot.

"There was a hearing a couple weeks ago and we received a ruling just today which says I will remain on the ballots, so the residency issue has been cleared," Sims said.

Democrat Manswell Peterson is also running. Republican Phil Cannon was kicked out of the race because he wasn't registered to vote when he qualified.
