TUCKER, Ga. (August 24, 2017) – Six candidates filed papers over the three-day qualifying period for Tucker’s City elections happening on November 7.
Four of the candidates are incumbents seeking re-election (Mayor Frank Auman, District One Councilmember Honey Van De Kreke, District Two Councilmember Matt Robbins and District Three Councilmember Michelle Penkava). In District One, Van De Kreke will be challenged by Pat Soltys, while District Three will see Penkava and challenger David Deaton on the ballot.
Mayor Auman and Councilmember Robbins are currently unopposed. There is a seven-day period currently underway for candidates seeking status as ‘qualified write-ins’. According to DeKalb County election officials, if no one emerges in that category there would still be a vote in the race for Mayor and the District Two City Council seat.
Tucker’s City Council elections are staggered, meaning the three remaining seats will be on the ballot in November 2019.
