District 3 Runoff Will Decide Atlanta's Newest City Councilman
A runoff to decide the vacant District 3 seat on the Atlanta City Council will take place Tuesday.
The election will fill the remainder of Young’s term, which expires in 2021.
After no one in the nine-candidate field won more than 50% of the vote in March's special election, Amos and Brown were left as the top two vote getters.
Candidate Greg Clay, who finished in third place, filed a legal challenge against Brown for not disclosing that he owed over $5,000 in state taxes. Clay also claimed that several residents were prohibited from voting.
Last week, a judge threw out Clay's challenge and ordered for the runoff to continue as planned.
The District 3 post represents communities near Mercedes Benz Stadium, including English Avenue and Vine City.
