Video: Carmichael, Leggett Eyeing Post 1 Seat
One new face is guaranteed to grace the Paulding County Board of Commissioners come January.
At least two non-incumbents are guaranteed to win county offices in Tuesday’s Republican primary.
One of those non-incumbents is already set to take office this January—Richard Manous is unopposed in the Paulding School Board’s District 4 race. The other race that will lead to a non-incumbent taking office is that for the Post 1 seat on the county’s Board of Commissioners. Neither office had Democratic or independent candidates enter their respective races.
Vying to become Post 1’s representative are David Carmichael and Heidi Leggett. The winner of Tuesday’s race will succeed current Post 1 Commissioner Larry Ragsdale, who initially qualified for reelection but withdrew his candidacy as the qualifying period ended.
Carmichael recently sat down with Dallas-Hiram Patch for an interview—see what he had to say in the attached videos.
Leggett did not respond to requests for an on-camera interview.
County voters also will decide the chairmanship of the Paulding Board of Commissioners. Incumbent David Austin is being challenged by Tony Crowe; we brought you video interviews with each candidate earlier this month.
