As of 10pm, it looks like a runoff for Savannah Mayor, with Chatham passing a SPLOST and a freeport tax exemption. Results here.
In Cobb County, replacing Mayor of Smyrna Max Bacon will be decided in a runoff between Derek Norton and Ryan Campbell. Of note, unofficial results show incumbent councilwoman Andrea Bluestein lost her seat by exactly two votes. “Every vote counts” indeed. All Cobb results here.
In Coweta County, Seniors exempted themselves from School taxes, rejected a SPLOST, and in Lewis Grizzard’s hometown of Moreland, liquor by the drink passed 37-26.
And, as I try to share with you a restaurant or two from time to time, I say ignore the Popeyes’ second try to make a first impression on their chicken sandwich. Nashville Hot fried chicken is the current buzz, and one of the better places to try this dish with a Georgia take on it is in St. Simons Island. Next time you make it down, try Porch. Crisp golden chicken that is spicy but doesn’t try too hard. Good to excellent sides. Priced right. Friendly service. Feels like home – if your grandma was half old south, half cajun.
