Tod Warner defeated Antonio Molina for an open seat on the Snellville City Council on Tuesday.
Warner, a real estate investment adviser, received 844 votes to Molina’s 641 votes, said Brian Arrington, public information officer for the Gwinnett County city. Molina is chief operating officer for medical practice Consultorio Medico Hispano.
The seat came open earlier this year after former Snellville City Councilwoman Barbara Bender left the post to become mayor in January.
In addition, Snellville residents, by a vote of 1,023 to 471, approved a Sunday Brunch bill that will allow Sunday alcohol sales to begin at restaurants at 11 a.m. Such sales will begin April 9.
Filling the Snellville Council seat was one of several decisions voters across metro Atlanta made Tuesday. Those decisions included a SPLOST for Clayton County schools, collaboration between MARTA and Gwinnett to expand public transit in the county, and the election of a new Cherokee County Commissioner.
