This surprised me, again, because qualifying closed Wednesday. Then I remembered: That's because Macon is the only city in Georgia with partisan City Council elections.
At least, as of May 2007 it was:
Of Georgia's 534 municipalities, only Macon holds partisan city elections, according to the secretary of state's office.A six week campaign left after qualifying — without counting early voting. That is brisk.
Some times you need to ask yourselves: Is everyone else really wrong about this?
