Incumbent Rusty Paul will face a challenger for the Sandy Springs Mayor’s Office on the Nov. 7 ballot, as a resident named David Crim qualified.

Crim, a resident of Elden Drive in the High Point area, was the only new candidate to join any city race on Aug. 25, the filing deadline.

According to social media profiles and state records, Crim is president of BetterCE, a Sandy Springs-based business that provides continuing education services to insurance professionals. BetterCE’s main office is in the Northside Tower at 6065 Roswell Road. Crim could not be reached for immediate comment and no answered the door at the company’s office.

Four City Council incumbents will run unopposed, including Andy Bauman (District 6), Chris Burnett (District 3), Tibby DeJulio (District 5) and John Paulson (District 1).

In the only other competitive race, Le’Dor Milteer and Jody Reichel will compete for the District 4 City Council seat. Incumbent Gabriel Sterling is leaving that seat to run for Fulton County chairman.

Steve Soteres is the sole candidate for the District 2 City Council seat, which incumbent Ken Dishman will leave.
