The results are in the Athens-Clarke county mayor’s race and there will be no runoff. With 100% of the vote in, Commissioner Kelly Girtz won with just over 60% of the vote.
He spoke with WUGA at his victory celebration Tuesday night.
It feels fantastic to have gotten such overwhelming support from people in this town that I love so much,” Girtz said. “We were on message, we were positive, we were forward-focused, we were honest, we were warm, we were engaging and collectively, all those things yielded success.”
