Congratulations!!! June Wood secures Republican nomination for Board of Commissioners chair in Tuesday’s runoff !!!

My husband John & I voted in the July run-off & will be voting for June Wood in the November 2016 elections, too #Vote4June

McDONOUGH— June Wood will go on to compete for chair of the Henry County Board of Commissioners in November after securing the Republican nomination Tuesday.

Wood defeated opponent, Lisa McGarity, by just over 500 votes in Tuesday’s runoff election. As of 10:15 p.m. Tuesday, Wood received 54.87 percent, with McGarity receiving 45.13 percent. According to the Henry County elections website, 5,628 ballots were cast in the race

“We are celebrating,” said Wood, as she awaited final numbers at Kirby G’s in McDonough. “We’ve got a lot of work to do. I’m going to continue to introduce myself to others and ask for their vote.”

During May 24 primary election, Wood received 40.21 percent, or 3,817 votes, and McGarity received 33.83 percent, or 3,211 votes.The two pushed Republican Larry Morey, who had 2,464 votes, out of the race during the May primary. With neither Wood nor McGarity securing more than 50 percent of the vote, the two squared off in the runoff election Tuesday.

Wood now will face Democrat Carlotta Harrell and Independent candidate Don Henderson in the November General Election. The chair’s seat is being vacated by Tommy Smith who did not run for re-election.

“She did a good campaign,” said McGarity. “It was a very close election and I think she’ll go on from here. I’ve enjoyed it and learned a lot.”

Wood said during the coming months she plans to continue to discuss her plans keep Henry County safe, enhance traffic congestion, and bring jobs to make Henry County a “great place to work, live, play and pray.”

Henry County Elections Director Tina Lunsford had expected a 10 percent turnout, which has been the average for local runoff elections in previous years. Tuesday’s unofficial numbers showed that only 5 percent of Henry County’s registered voters cast a ballot in the chair race.

Lunsford suggested that many voters are likely focused more on the U.S presidential race, and not focused on races at the local level. In addition, those who had voted on Democratic ballots in the primary were not able to vote in the Republican runoff.

Election numbers are unofficial until certified on Friday.

We had another armed robbery in our community here-they did NOT catch the suspects, yet

McDONOUGH — A McDonough man who arranged to meet a woman through, a website that is commonly used to solicit for sexual acts, was allegedly ambushed and kidnapped Thursday night when he went to his would-be paramour’s house.

The 21-year-old man reportedly drove to Audubon Avenue around 11 p.m. to meet up with a woman he had been communicating with via text.

According to the Henry County Police Department, when the victim parked his car, he was approached by the woman with whom he had been communicating and two other females.

Two of the females then left the victim and his date alone, at which point two men jumped from the bushes and pointed a gun at him, according to the incident report.

The men allegedly took the victim’s wallet, keys and phone and looked for money inside his blue Volvo.

Police said one suspect ordered the victim to get into his car and drive to the ATM in the Walmart parking lot on Willow Lane.

The second suspect followed behind the vehicle in a gold mini van, the report states.

At the ATM, the suspects reportedly conducted two transactions, first withdrawing $20 and then $80. However, the report states, one suspect returned the $20 back to the victim and the two vehicles returned to Audubon Avenue where the suspects also returned the victim’s wallet and cellphone.

The victim told police that he was punched in the face during the incident and police noted he had a slightly swollen lip.

The suspects were described as two black males, one heavier set with short braids and a black bandana, the other was thin and wearing a red bandana.

Officers located a gold Honda Odyssey on Audubon Avenue, which had been reported stolen from Atlanta.

The incident is under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Henry County Police Department at 770-288-8200.
