No incumbents on the Powder Springs City Council have opted to pass on re-election bids, but so far, all three remain unopposed ahead of Thursday’s final day of candidate qualifying.
Ward 3’s Nancy Hudson qualified late Tuesday afternoon after her two fellow councilmen, Ward 1’s Cheryl Sarvis and Ward 2’s Al Thurman, filed their paperwork earlier in the day, City Clerk Dawn Davis told West Cobb Patch Wednesday. The three incumbents were the only ones to have qualified by 4:15 p.m. Wednesday—just 15 minutes before the end of qualifying for the day.
