Politics are sure to grab the headlines, nationally as well as locally, in 2020. Not only is the post of US President up for a vote this year, local voters will determine who will serve as the next Sheriff of Floyd County to succeed Tim Burkhalter, who will not seek re-election. Three Republican candidates who have announced plans to run for that office – Tom Caldwell, Dave Roberson and Ronnie Kilgo – were all on hand Tuesday for the monthly meeting of the Floyd County Republican Women.
Another race for locals to watch in 2020 – the 14th Congressional District. US Representative Tom Graves will not seek re-election this year.
A listing of important dates for this election year is available on the Georgia Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ga.gov.
