DeKalb County, GA, December 2, 2014 – by Trey Benton – Voters in DeKalb County District 1 again went to the polls Tuesday to cast their ballots for new representation on the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners.
When the results came in, Nancy Jester, the former DeKalb County School Board member and Actuarial from Dunwoody, was the winner.
Jester received 3954 (75.85%) votes, while Pyles received 1259 (24.15%) votes.
After her win Jester said, “Thank you, District 1 of DeKalb County, GA. Let’s get to work!”
For more than 22 years ex-Commissioner Elaine Boyer represented District 1 on the DeKalb BOC. She resigned after being accused of swindling taxpayers out of more than $90,000, then pled guilty to Federal Charges of wire and mail fraud.
