The five declared candidates for the Sandy Springs City Council District 3 special election are now officially in the race, with one more day left for other candidates to sign on.
Chris Burnett, Brian Eufinger, Joe Houseman, Suzi Voyles and Larry Young all filed candidate paperwork by the end of the second day of a qualifying period on April 14, according to city spokesperson Sharon Kraun.
Burnett is market president of the Bank of Sandy Springs. Eufinger is founder of school testing preparation company and runs the “Sandy Springs Zoning Coalition” Facebook group. Houseman is a Delta airline pilot. Voyles is a homemaker and acting executive director of the Fulton County Republican Party. Young is an attorney and civil engineer who formerly served as a city judge.
The candidate qualifying period will end tomorrow, April 15, at 12:30 p.m.
The special election will be held May 24. The District 3 seat, which represents much of central Sandy Springs, is vacant after Graham McDonald’s resignation last month for a state House campaign.
