Three Henry commission seats up for grabs in 2020

Three seats on the Henry County Board of Commissioners will be decided at the polls this year.

Qualifying took place the first week of March. The race for countywide chair consists of Republican incumbent June Wood and Democratic challenger Carlotta Harrell, so nothing will happen there until the fall. The District 1 seat will not change, as incumbent Republican Johnny Wilson is unopposed. District 2 is another story. Democratic incumbent Dee Clemmons has two challengers in the primary: Devlin Cleveland and Tina Marie Coria.

The winner of the May 19 primary will face Republican challenger Steve Richardson in the general election. If necessary, a runoff is scheduled for July 21.
