This November’s municipal elections in Powder Springs will have a few familiar faces.
According to City Clerk Dawn Davis, only two had filed paperwork to seek office by 4 p.m. Tuesday, and both are incumbents—Ward 1 Councilwoman Cheryl Sarvis and Ward 2 Councilman Al Thurman.
Qualifying ended for the day at 4:30 p.m., but interested candidates will have from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday to file their paperwork in the second-floor conference room of city hall.
The qualifying fee is $360, and potential candidates must have resided in the city for at least 12 months prior to the election. A map of the three wards is attached to this article.
Voters in Powder Springs will head to the polls on Nov. 5 to determine if Sarvis and Thurman will each earn another term. The elections will also see voters choose a councilman for Ward 3; Nancy Hudson currently holds that council seat.
