Brookhaven, GA, June 3, 2015 – The Post Reports – Former Brookhaven Mayor J. Max Davis, joined by his family, presented the paper work and qualifying fee at the office of Georgia’s Secretary of State Wednesday to be placed on the ballot for the July 14 special election.
“It’s an exciting time,” said Davis. “Now that I’ve qualified, I’m ready to take my successful record and positive ideas to the voters throughout the district. It will be an intense, fast campaign and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Under Georgia law, one cannot hold an office when seeking another. To follow that rule, Davis has resigned his position as Mayor of Brookhaven.
Republican J. Max Davis led the effort to create the City of Brookhaven and was elected its inaugural Mayor in 2012. His father, Max Davis, served in the State House of Representatives for over two decades.
