In early 2022, the office holder for the Ward B seat decided to run for a Georgia State House seat. In order to run for that office, Thomas Calloway vacated his city council seat.
This opened the East Point City Council's Ward B seat for a special election. The election for this seat occurred on November 8th, but no one candidate one a majority of the votes. State law requires a runoff between the top-two voting getting candidates.
The runoff election is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec 6. The winning candidate will fill the remainder of the term.
