The window closed at noon Friday for people who want to seek office in the Good Life City government.

A political newcomer, Jesse Massey, joins three other candidates who hope to take over from outgoing Mayor Dr. Willie Adams, whose term expires this year.

The other candidates are: B. J. Fletcher, City Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard, and for state representative John White.

Ward 4 will have Roger Marietta against Jason McCoy.

Ward 6 will pit three people against each other: Incumbent Tommie Postell, former commissioner Victor Edwards, and newcomer Kowana McKinney.

Ward 1 Commissioner Jon Howard drew no opposition, so he is automatically reelected, and his name will not be on the ballot.

"In municipalities where a candidate has no opposition their name will not be placed on the ballot so there fore his name will not be placed on the ballot this election and he's automatically the winner," said Dougherty Elections Supervisor Ginger Nickerson.

Since Dorothy Hubbard gave up her Ward 2 post, qualifying for her replacement will happen September 14th, through noon on the 16th.
