Nix will return to Board of Commissioners, Holcomb faces two challengers

Election 2018

Commissioner Edwin Nix

CLEVELAND, Ga. – Qualifying ended at noon today. The field is now set for the May 22 General Primary election.

District 2 County Commissioner Lyn Holcomb will have to defeat Mike Boswell, who lists his occupation as wastewater operator, and Ricky Farmer, the owner of a pet crematory, to serve another term on the Board of Commissioners.

District 3 Commissioner Edwin Nix, however, is unopposed and will return to the Board in January.

Charlie Bryson, a fire investigator, is the incumbent Board of Education member from District 2. Carly Adam, an administrative assistant, and John Solmon will challenge for that seat.

For a time, it appeared as though there would be no candidates in the District 4 Board of Education race, but on the final day of qualifying, two candidates stepped forward. Jeannette Gearing, a substitute teacher, and Linda Erbele, a freelance writer, qualified.

The state level race has incumbent District 9 State Representative Kevin Tanner (R) of Dawsonville pitted against Mark Hajduk (R) of Cumming.
