The City of Milledgeville wrapped up its 2013 elections Tuesday evening.
Minus one position, Walter Reynolds, District 4, City Council and mayoral race winners were all incumbents.
City elections superintendent Patti Rushin said she was disappointed in the overall voter turnout. Of 5,914 active registered voters, just 1,204 cast votes accounting for a low 20.36 percent total.
Rushin said after all the work behind the scenes seeing so few city residents vote hurt.
“It’s really sickening that so many folks complain about government, yet so many folks do nothing to have a voice in it. People need to get that message,” she said.
Unofficial Milledgeville municipal election results:
• Dr. Collinda J. Lee (District 1 Incumbent Unopposed)
She has served on City Council for four years and as Mayor Pro-Tem one year.
Lee said implementation of her vision for the City of Milledgeville will come through growth strategy, economic and social procedures, which in turn would be a long-term plan, goal and commitment for sustainability.
“It was the people who placed me in this government office, and it is the people who are keeping me in office,” Lee previously told the Union-Recorder. “Therefore, I will continue to listen to the people and adhere to the people’s needs.”
• Jeanette H. Walden (District 2 Incumbent Unopposed)
Walden is finishing her 16th year on Council and looks forward to four more serving District 2.
“I am proud of my work with the Central State Hospital and the Milledgeville-Baldwin Communiversity in the Shaw Building. These projects have tremendous potential for creating new jobs for the entire community. However, I am most proud of being available to my district. Those who reside in my district know I will always listen to and do the best I can to help them in any way that I can,” Walden previously told the U-R.
