Senoia voters to see 3-way race for mayor
Qualifying for mayor and two seats on the Senoia City Council ended Wednesday but the lone contested race will be for mayor’s seat. Three candidates qualified for the seat held by Mayor Robert Belisle who previously announced that he would not seek re-election.
Qualifying for mayor were incumbent Councilman Larry Owens, 65-year-old business owner and Senoia Downtown Development Authority Chairman Suzanne Helfman and 81-year-old retiree Don Rehman.
Mayor Robert Belisle, as promised, did not seek re-election.
Qualifying for the Post 1 seat held by Councilman Larry Owens had only one taker. That was 66-year-old retiree Chuck Eichorst.
The term held by Post 2 Councilman Jeff Fisher is also set to expire this year. Fisher qualified with no opposition.
The deadline for registering to vote in the November election is Oct 7.
