• Denese R. Shinholster (District 3 Incumbent)
Shinholster is currently one of the senior most elected officials serving in city government. She defeated challenger Phillip Smith Tuesday 137 votes to 50 votes.
“I bring leadership, experience and stability to the table for the citizens of my district. It is important for people to have someone they can count on to make informed decisions. I’m not a newcomer to the area. I’ve been involved with District 3 for some time. It is important for the citizens to know that we understand their needs and are willing to help them in every way possible,” Shinholster told the U-R.
• Walter Reynolds (District 4 Unopposed)
Reynolds is a lifelong resident of Milledgeville and Baldwin County. He serves as treasurer of the Oconee River Greenway Foundation and is the chairman of the Young Professionals of Milledgeville.
Reynolds ran unopposed after current District 4 Councilman Phillip Joiner decided not to seek reelection.
“More than anything, it is a representative’s job to listen. My door will always be open to those who see where improvements can be made. Together we can make Milledgeville a shining example of what a community is supposed to be,” Reynolds told the U-R.
• Richard “Boo” Mullins, Jr. (District 5 Incumbent)
Mullins is a lifelong resident of Milledgeville and most importantly of District 5, serving on Council for 13 years. The incumbent’s 235 total votes outlasted challengers Pam Beer (64) and Daniel McDonald (70).
“We have to aggressively seek ways to provide jobs and attract young professionals. We also have to make sure that we stay abreast with new and innovative technology,” Mullins told the U-R. “I will remain actively involved in discussions and decisions that will bring about progressive change and continue to move Milledgeville forward. In order to implement this vision, our leaders will have to think outside of the box.”
