Three Councilmembers Face Challengers, Willis Unopposed

The city of South Fulton will hold a general election on November 5 to select councilmembers in Districts 1, 3, 5 and 7. Incumbents in three of the districts will face challengers. District 3 Councilwoman Helen A. Willis is unopposed.

“I’m humbled and honored to be unopposed,” said Councilwoman Willis. “I will continue to be committed to my community and its progress.”

In District 1, Mathis Ben Colquitt, a network engineer will challenge Councilwoman Catherine Foster Rowell.

In District 5, Councilwoman Rosie Jackson will face three opponents: Corey Alan Reeves, vice president; Clyde Eugene Sampson, II, baggage handler; and Duane L. McClain, educational specialist.

Reeves previously faced off against Jackson in 2017 in the city council election earning 48.55 percent of the vote in the run-off.

In District 7, Eric L Richardson, retired, will oppose Mayor Pro Tem Mark Baker. No stranger to politics, Richardson currently serves as the Political Director for the Fulton Democrats.

Voters should be registered by October 7 to participate in the election. In-person early voting is tentatively scheduled for October 15.
