Not a single person filled out the necessary paperwork last week to qualify to run for the District 3 city council seat in Milton.
So, the city in north Fulton County is extending its deadline for qualifying until Tuesday, Aug. 29 at 5 p.m.
The original qualifying deadline for Milton’s upcoming municipal election in November was set for Aug. 25. By then, two candidates had qualified for mayor and three other candidates qualified for council seats.
For the District 2 city council seat, incumbent Bill Lusk will face a challenger in Laura Bentley, a farm owner who holds degrees from Appalachian State and Mercer universities. She is currently the chairperson for the Milton Equestrian Committee.
