Challenger holds fundraising edge in race for Powder Springs council seat

·1 min read

Oct. 13—Of the three Powder Springs City Council seats on the ballot this year, only one incumbent — Ward 3's Nancy Farmer — is facing a challenger.

Her opponent Dwayne Green, a funeral home operator, holds a slight fundraising edge in the race with a few weeks until Election Day. That's per disclosure reports filed at the end of September.

Both Farmer and Green are putting their own cash into their campaigns, with Farmer loaning herself $1,360 to-date, and receiving no contributions. Green has loaned himself $1,800 with another $400 coming from individual contributions. Among Green's supporters is current at-large council member Patrick Bordelon, who is not up for reelection this year and gave $100.

Both candidates' expenditures have gone almost exclusively to printed materials — yard signs, door hangers, and banners — along with the city's $360 qualifying fee. That leaves Farmer and Green with $388 and $522 on-hand, respectively.

Council members Doris Dawkins and Henry Lust are both running for reelection as well, but did not draw opponents, and submitted affidavits stating they have raised less than $2,500.
